De-Implementation & Other Thorny Issues

Karen Born, St. Michael’s Hospital & IHPME

This presentation will focus on the challenges associated with de-implementation, rather than implementation. I will provide an overview of the quality problem of overuse and waste in health care and address how strategies to address overuse and reduce waste offer a unique challenge to implementation science. Considerations and challenges specific to de-implementation and the efforts of Choosing Wisely campaigns around the world will be discussed.
