Choosing Wisely in Long-Term Care

The overuse of tests and treatments in older adults can have significant implications for quality of care and patient safety. This is particularly important in long-term care (LTC) facilities, where staff and resource constraints can create the conditions whereby over-medicalization occurs.

Our new resource guide, Choosing Wisely in Long-Term Care: A Resource Guide to Help You Get Started, is a collection of relevant recommendations, quality improvement toolkits, and clinician and patient materials. This guide can support staff caring for LTC residents and ensure limited resources are used wisely.
