Interested in updating your core family practice knowledge?
Want to hear about the Choosing Wisely campaign, or some 'next steps' if you're already an expert?
I'll be speaking at The University of British Columbia (UBC) Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 50th Annual Post-Graduate review in Family Medicine. I was asked to speak about the Choosing Wisely Canada Campaign and it's an exciting opportunity to share my passion for this and other initiatives within the movement towards appropriateness in care.
As some of the audience may already be familiar with the campaign and using it regularly, I will also offer some "next steps" ideas for these keeners.
My talk, "Choosing Wisely (& Beyond): Starting Conversations Around Unnecessary Tests and Procedures " is at 11:05 on Tuesday, February 25th. To see slides/handouts from my previous talks or to see scheduled upcoming talks, go to the MEDIA/TALKS section of the site.
The Post Graduate Review is a pretty high-yield, practical sort of CME event and knowing some of this year's speakers, I can say I'm really looking forward to talks on Palliative Care, Interesting Cases in Rheumatology, Counselling Anti-Vaccine Parents, Weight Loss in Obesity, and many more! [Sadly I'll miss some of them as my partner's vacation starts on the 26th and we'll be off adventuring, but when it comes to vacation, more is more ;) ]
