Choosing Wisely Talks | Where Do We Go From Here? Understanding the Impact of Screening Backlogs

A recent CMA report showed that numerous forms of care have been delayed, cancelled, or otherwise affected by the pandemic throughout 2020 and 2021. Cancer screenings rates, in particular, have declined 20% to 35% below pre-pandemic levels.

What does this mean for the quality of patient care? How might primary care providers deal with the backlogs, and can Choosing Wisely Canada recommendations help?

On March 9 at 11 1.m. CT Choosing Wisely Talks will explore the impact of screening delays in primary care. Experts will discuss the implications of the screening backlogs, as well as practical ways to move forward.
