Participants will identify opportunities on how to “practise wisely”, with a focus on reducing over-prescribing, over-imaging, over-screening and over-monitoring using the latest evidence and tools from diverse sources. This workshop aligns closely with the Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC) campaign to implement good healthcare stewardship and avoid over-medicalization.
After active engagement in this full-day, deep dive into all 4 modules, participants will be better able to: Identify opportunities to reduce “too much medicine” Access and assess reliable, renewing online resources Integrate relevant evidence into individual patient care, and Communicate and build consensus with patients to reduce over-medicalization For more information on this and other CPD workshops, contact ACFP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
