Workshop Fee
Practising Wisely   $325  
Primary Care Transformation   $325

Workshop Descriptions:

  • Practising Wisely: Reducing Unnecessary Testing and Treatment
    Practising Wisely is a suite of new continuing professional development opportunities for primary care providers. Participants will identify opportunities 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 closely aligns with the Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC) campaign to implement good health care stewardship and avoid over-medicalization.
  • Primary Care Transformation: How to Tackle Sticky Problems We Were Never Taught to Address
    In health care, we all eventually come face to face with problems outside our specific locus of control. These “system” problems in health care pose significant challenges to patients and primary care providers alike. This workshop will explore the Systems Transformation element of the LEADS Framework in health leadership. We will examine what is meant by systems transformation, expose participants to challenges that are rooted in our traditional mindset, and consider new approaches to problems we were never taught to solve.
