Choosing Wisely Students win at American Geriatric Society Conference

Congratulations to two of Choosing Wisely Canada’s medical students, Billy Silverstein and Elliot Lass, who were awarded Best Poster at the American Geriatrics Society Conference International Poster Session in Washington DC on May 16th. Their poster outlined preliminary results from 291 surveys they distributed to patients at Family Health Team clinics in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, regarding their knowledge of appropriate use of common tests, treatments, and procedures. Survey results confirm the value in educating patients on the benefits and harm of fairly standard forms of treatment.
