The CSEM and Choosing Wisely Canada

The goals of the Choosing Wisely Canada initiative are to improve the quality and sustainability of health care by identifying investigations, procedures and treatments that are of little value or necessity and create recommendations to amend these practices. The intent is to inform physicians, health care providers and, very importantly, patients of these issues.

CSEM has agreed to join the national specialty societies that will participate in Choosing Wisely Canada and will have recommendations come in the second wave of CWC released later in 2014. The Quality Improvement Committee of CSEM has been charged with selecting about 5 key recommendations. The Committee is actively seeking to populate a list generated by clinicians, from their observations in practice, to inform the final choices.

We hope you'll take a few minutes to consider things and complete the CSEM survey by clicking here (or click here to complete the survey in French). The deadline for completion of the survey is May 2, 2014.

To assist your deliberations and provide examples of what recommendations might look like you can refer to existing CWC recommendations from other specialties, and the US version created by the Endocrine Society and American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

PCSK9 Education and Research Forum

Established by leading researchers as a not-for-profit organisation, the PCSK9 Education and Research Forum will provide healthcare professionals with open access to electronic and multimedia platforms providing real-time reporting of significant developments and news; authoritative analysis and commentary; and an extensive library of accredited educational materials tailored to the differing needs of a spectrum of audiences. As a result, the Forum will expand awareness and knowledge of the significant role played by PCSK9 in lipid metabolism and its value as a novel therapeutic target.

More information about the PCSK9 Education and Research Forum is available at http://www.pcsk9forum.org/.
