Research Seminar: Choosing Wisely

Friday, March 15, 2024 12:30to13:30

Choosing Wisely Canada is the national voice for reducing unnecessary tests and treatments in Canada. Unnecessary tests and treatments expose patients to potential harm, consume precious health care resources, and contribute to the climate crisis. Choosing Wisely Canada works with national clinician societies to identify and develop recommendations on frequently overused tests and treatments that do not add value to patient care. It mobilizes health care providers and their organizations to adopt the recommendations and make them part of routine practice.

This seminar is organized by the Department of Family Medicine.

Seminar title: Choosing Wisely: from knowing about it to implementing it.

Speaker: Guylène Thériault, MD, CCFP, MA, Co-lead for primary care “Choosing Wisely Canada”.

When: Friday March 15, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm.

Where: Virtually by Zoom. (A link will be sent to you after registration).

Research Seminar Series

Every month, a research seminar is held at the Department of Family Medicine where we either feature visiting researchers from other universities, or showcase the work of our own researchers. The seminars are attended by our graduate students, researchers and clinicians, and are open to the whole McGill community. They address a wide range of research methods and topics relevant to primary health care, and provide opportunity for interaction and exchange with the speakers. The Research Seminars are Fridays at around noon.
