Choosing Wisely: Changing the Conversation in Residency
Residency is a critical period for physicians to gain as much experience as possible as they prepare for independent practice. Behaviours, including resource stewardship, are developed in residency and continue throughout careers. During training residents are compelled to demonstrate their knowledge to supervisors and often do this by ordering many diagnostic tests. This creates a conflict of appropriateness, demonstrating competence, and adjusting practice to match that of many different supervisors.
Join us Thursday May 2 to hear from Dr. Chris Hillis, a hematologist at McMaster University and Postgraduate Medical Education Specialist at Choosing Wisely Canada. This Choosing Wisely Talks will focus on how residents can demonstrate their knowledge, advance their clinical skills and avoid overuse. We will also hear from Dr. Chandandeep Bal, a PGY 1 resident at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, about her experiences and challenges ‘choosing wisely’ as a resident. The webinar will demonstrate opportunities to apply Choosing Wisely Canada recommendations in practice.
