Choosing Wisely Talks | Unnecessary Medical Travel in Canada’s North
In rural and remote communities, geographical barriers and limited access to specialized services often result in patients travelling far distances for inpatient and outpatient care. Ensuring the necessity of every test and treatment is of utmost importance in these locales because low-value care, in addition being clinically inappropriate, impose financial burdens and causes time away from one’s family, work, and community.
Join Choosing Wisely Talks on March 6 at 12 PM ET for a discussion on delivering high-value care as close to home as appropriate. Speakers will share practical guidance for improving referrals, minimizing unnecessary medical travel, and bringing investigations closer to where patients live.
