Preventing Overdiagnosis 2017: Towards Responsible Global Solutions

Our aim is to facilitate a movement toward responsible global solutions for preventing overdiagnosis and overuse.

Preventing Overdiagnosis 2017 will cover how physicians, researchers and patients can implement solutions to the problems of ODx and overuse in the healthcare system using evidence available and that currently being generated. Delegates will learn to avoid waste, use best practice when communicating and engaging with patients and the public, and achieve a better understanding of the benefits of shared decision making within the constraints of modern practice.

We are very pleased to announce the following sessions and Keynote Speakers:

Moving from evidence to Action
Dr Barnett Kramer - NIH, Prof Stacy Carter - University of Sydney & Normand Laberge - QMA

Engaging with Citizens, Patients and the Public
Fran Visco - NBCC, Richard Morley - PPI & Carolyn Canfield - Independent Citizen/Patient
