Other CADTH COVID-19 News
- CADTH is partnering with Choosing Wisely Canada to identify actions that could lead to better post-pandemic care for Canadians. The organizations are developing recommendations for reducing low-value care that, if implemented, could make more resources available to deliver the priority services that are most beneficial to patients.
- As a next step, CADTH will convene a panel of Canadian clinician, patient, and policy experts to review the shortlist and develop final recommendations for clinicians and senior policy decision-makers.
- The results will be presented at Choosing Wisely Canada’s National Meeting in May 2021 and will be published in CADTH’s Canadian Journal of Health Technologies.
