Ensuring High-Value Health Care After the Pandemic

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. The recommendations will be presented at Choosing Wisely Canada’s National Meeting in May 2021 and will be published in CADTH’s Canadian Journal of Health TechnologiesLearn more.
