Quality Forum: Choosing Wisely by Jessica Otte on Prezi

10 minutes: That's how much time I had to tell the audience at the BC Quality Forum about the Choosing Wisely Canada campaign.

10 minutes may be the schedule duration of a routine patient visit with their GP. That's a short amount of time! In this short time it is hard to have a fulsome discussion with a patient about their condition, review their history, check in with their goals, and plan a strategy of treatment. It's even harder when the patient has 3 things they want to discuss!

10 minutes is not enough time to change the world - unless you do it a little bit at a time! That's why the take-away from my talk was simple:

Quality Forum: A New Kind of Rounds (Teaching patient-centred care that avoids unnecessary and harmful interventions)

I have followed the Do No Harm project and their articles in JAMA's Teachable Moments section (under the Less is More theme). Then, at the Lown Institute's Road to Right Care conference, I learned more about "Right Care Rounds," and in Nanaimo we developed our own version.

More background information and the talk from our first session, on the subject of treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in the elderly, can be found here.

Following the success of this event, we decided to do more of them. Our next one is tentatively in April and will be on the subject of overtreatment of hypertension. Thinking, "why not spread the message of what we are trying?," we've created a poster that I will present at the BC Quality Forum.
