After the Preventing Overdiagnosis Conference, I took almost a month off, which we spent tootling around Iceland in a LandRover and enjoying the food and culture of Brussels, Brugge, and Paris.
Back home now, I am also back into the swing of things. It is full speed ahead! In brief:
- Today, Dr James McCormack (@medmyths) and I will be presenting to the UBC Medicine students in their Doctor, Patient, and Society (DPAS) 420 class on Less is More in Medicine
- I'll be doing various talks on this subject for the Family Medicine Forum (Nov 15, Quebec), Vancouver General Hospital Family Practice Rounds (Dec 9, Vancouver), the UBC CPD Post Graduate Review in Family Medicine (Feb 25, Vancouver), and the Rural and Remote Medicine conference (Apr 10, Montreal)
- To the website, I've added a Media section, which will list any news articles or talks related to the site, and a Declaration section, detailing no conflicts of interest. Many other updates are needed!
- I have tones of notes from the Preventing Overdiagnosis Conference and will try to summarize some of the themes in a following blog post, and update portions of the website accordingly (like the People section - lots of great names to add)
There's so much being written on this subject right now, it is hard to keep up. As busy as it makes me, it is a good problem to have.
