Choosing Wisely Canada’s (CWC) 4th Annual National Meeting will take place on May 27th, 2019 at Montreal’s Centre Mont-Royal and is the perfect event to get up to speed on what health care professionals across the country are doing to reduce unnecessary care.
The Choosing Wisely Saskatchewan team is excited about the national meeting as it is an excellent opportunity for clinicians, patients, and system leaders from across Canada to come together to discuss, engage, and network on topics related to this year’s theme, reducing unnecessary tests and treatments.
