Choosing Wisely Talks: Choosing Wisely Canada Measurement Overview
Dr. Sacha Bhatia, Choosing Wisely Canada’s Evaluation Lead and Director, Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care (WHIV), focused on measurement presented initiatives underway in several different provinces, in collaboration with our partners the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). Participants learned about Choosing Wisely Canada’s measurement framework, different sources of data for measurement, and the benefits and challenges associated with each type of data. Furthermore, participants learned about the methods used to measure rates of pre-operative testing and low-value Pap smears in Ontario and how these methods have been translated for measurement in other provinces. Results from both the pre-operative testing and Pap smear projects were shared.
