Choosing Wisely Talks | Medico-legal Concerns: What Gets in the Way of Choosing Wisely?
Clinicians concerns about malpractice can drive unnecessary ordering of tests and treatments in order to be thorough and cover all clinical possibilities. Are these concerns real? How can clinicians choose wisely and still be “safe”?
In December’s Choosing Wisely Talks, we’ll discuss communication approaches, tools, and strategies to address these complicated practice issues. Integrating Choosing Wisely into clinical practice can be protective to practice and ensure quality and patient safety. Dr. Lisa Calder, CEO of the Canadian Medical Protective Association and Dr. Peter Kuling, Family Physician based in Ottawa, lead the conversation on December 2 at 12 p.m. ET.
