The RCH has committed to addressing 2 low value care practices per year. In keeping with the core principles of the Choosing Wisely campaign, this will be driven by clinicians on the floor – a grass roots approach. Clinicians will be supported by the Centre of Health Analytics to extract and understand data, and the Electronic Medical Record team to introduce system-level interventions.
Listen to RCH Choosing Wisely clinical lead, Dr Joanna Lawrence, and Chief of Critical Care, Associate Professor Ed Oakley, talk about low-value care, the drivers and the potential harms.Listen to the podcast here!
