Introducing Choosing Wisely Canada’s virtual gatherings. This weekly forum provides an opportunity to discuss various topics related to resource stewardship in the time of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed enormous pressures on the capacity of health care systems and providers to continue to deliver vital services. What are some things clinicians and the public can do to help free up limited health care resources for those who need it most? How might we navigate the confusing and sometimes conflicting advice about what to do and what not to do? Can we learn from the efforts of colleagues in countries deeply impacted by the pandemic?
Tune-in to our weekly virtual gathering of the Choosing Wisely Canada community for interactive learning and discussions, engaging talks by leading speakers and more importantly, an opportunity to stay connected with each other during these challenging times.
The weekly virtual gatherings will take place every Wednesday, 12-1 p.m. (ET) throughout the month of April, starting on April 15.
The April 15 session will feature Dr. Wendy Levinson, Chair of Choosing Wisely Canada and Dr. Sandra Vernero, Vice President, Slow Medicine Italy. Week 1 will discuss the recently released set of nine COVID-19 recommendations from Choosing Wisely.
