Surgical backlogs are causing significant pressures in provinces across the country, exacerbated by successive waves of the pandemic and shortages in health human resources. What is the role of reducing overuse in addressing backlogs and how can we better support Canadians in making informed decisions about their surgical care?

Join Choosing Wisely Talks on April 19 at 12 p.m. ET to discuss the current state of surgical backlogs in Canada. Experts will discuss the role of shared decision-making, system changes, and how we can work together to improve access to timely and high-quality surgical care.
