Quality Based Care Association (Q-BaCA)
Advocating for healthcare resource stewardship; learning about the consequences of over-testing and over-prescribing.
Q-BaCA is the Schulich chapter of Choosing Wisely Canada, an organization which advocates for evidence-based protocols in order to test and prescribe wisely. Prevention of crises such as the opioid epidemic and the antimicrobial resistance starts with thinking before prescribing.
We will be holding several events throughout the year and working on a taskforce to integrate some resource stewardship principles into the medical curriculum.
