What: MSSU will be hosting a viewing of the upcoming CADTH Lecture Series Webinar - Choosing Wisely Canada: Evidence-Based Medicine and Changing the Canadian Health Care Environment
When: June 9th @ 3pm-4:30pm (Atlantic)
Who: Dr. Wendy Levinson, Professor and Past Chair, Department of Medicine, University of Toronto, and Chair of Choosing Wisely Canada
Where: Room 114 in the Centre for Clinical Research, 5790 University Ave, Halifax, NS
Choosing Wisely Canada is a campaign to help physicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests, treatments, and procedures, and to help physicians and patients make smart and effective choices to ensure high-quality care. The campaign is grassroots and physician-led. It aims to change provider and patient culture and dispel the false notion that “more care is better care.” Join Dr. Wendy Levinson as she gives a brief overview of Choosing Wisely Canada, describes the “epidemic of overuse,” and discusses the efforts of various health care organizations to implement Choosing Wisely recommendations within the Canadian health care environment. Dr. Levinson will also share specific strategies to implement Choosing Wisely in medical education and practice.
