RDoC Resource Stewardship Survey

Resource Stewardship in Residency – Extended Deadline!

Dear Resident,

Up to 30% of tests and treatments that physicians order, are unnecessary, do not change patient care management, and may cause patient harm.  Resource stewardship is an approach which focuses on appropriate allocation of resources for patient care which considers benefits, harms, and overall costs.

Resident Doctors of Canada has partnered with Choosing Wisely Canada to create a preliminary list of 12 recommendations for residents.  We hope that this list will help guide residents on the appropriate use of healthcare resources in residency.

WE WANT YOUR INPUT to create a final list of “Five Things Residents Should Question”.

By filling out this short 5-minute anonymous consultation, you will be a part of this movement to reduce unnecessary care.  To participate, please click on the following link: Resource Stewardship Consultation.  This survey will close on Monday May 15th.

If you complete this survey you will be automatically entered into a draw to win an Apple Watch.  Please provide your email address if you wish to be considered in this draw.

Should you have any additional questions regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thank you for your help in this important initiative!
