Leading and Implementing Change: Choosing Wisely Canada National Meeting April 2018 in Toronto

Interested in learning more about Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC)? The 3rd Annual National Meeting, Choosing Wisely Canada: Leading and Implementing Change, will take place April 23, 2018 at Toronto’s Globe and Mail Conference Centre. 

Choosing Wisely Saskatchewan (CWSK), coordinated by Health Quality Council, is a proud supporter of Choosing Wisely Canada and provides local support to provincial initiatives to reduce unnecessary care through the provincial Appropriateness of Care program and grassroots Choosing Wisely initiatives. It engages patients and families through the More is Not Always Better campaign. The Choosing Wisely Saskatchewan team is excited about the national meeting as it is an opportunity for clinicians, patients and system leaders across Canada to come together to discuss topics related to reducing unnecessary care. 

“There is a lot of great work already underway in Saskatchewan to reduce unnecessary care. The CWC national meeting provides a great opportunity to highlight and share this work, and exchange ideas, with other across Canada.” (Jenn Wright, coordinator of Choosing Wisely Saskatchewan)
