Choosing Wisely Talks | Addressing Patient Requests for Unnecessary Care: The Art of Conversation

Choosing Wisely Talks | Addressing Patient Requests for Unnecessary Care: The Art of Conversation

Best evidence suggests the patient you are seeing right now doesn’t need imaging for their low back pain. The patient thinks imaging will help his recovery like it did for his neighbor. There are other patients in the waiting room and you’re already behind. What do you do? Can you communicate the message that imaging is not needed, build trust, and stay on time?

Join Drs. Wendy Levinson and Kimberly Wintemute on Wednesday October 2nd as they discuss the challenge of addressing common requests for unnecessary tests and treatments.

By the end of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Engage in conversations with patients about requests for tests or treatments that are not in line with best evidence
  2. Use evidence to describe why some common tests and treatments are not necessary as part of routine care
  3. Access resources to aid patients in making decisions related to unnecessary care

The Choosing Wisely Talks Webinar Series is a self-approved group learning activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
