September 28 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EDT

The health care sector is a significant contributor to Canada’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. How might the everyday choices of clinicians play a role in fighting climate change? Can reducing overuse be part of the solution?

In September’s Choosing Wisely Talks, we’ll discuss the “co-benefits” of reducing low-value care and our environmental footprint. Experts will share perspectives on tackling climate change while delivering safe and quality care.
