Up to 30 per cent of tests and treatments given to patients are not needed. In addition to wasting money for patients and the health system, this can lead to significant inconvenience and potential harm for patients without any benefit. A new research network looking at solutions for de-implementing this low value care received a boost in funding recently. The Implementation Research Network, part of Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC), will receive $1.5 million over four years for research spanning three provinces, including Newfoundland and Labrador.
