Participants will identify opportunities on how to “practise wisely”, with a focus on reducing over-prescribing, over-imaging, over-screening and over-monitoring using the latest evidence and tools from diverse sources. This workshop aligns closely with the Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC) campaign to implement good healthcare stewardship and avoid over-medicalization.

Participants will learn how to access reliable, curated and renewable online resources for an evidence-informed practice supporting individualized patient-care. Active learning exercises such as case studies, individual reflection and group work will help participants to build communication skills to guide their patients through the shift from seeking sickness to enhancing health.
