Overdiagnosis occurs when people are diagnosed with a disease that ultimately will not cause them to experience symptoms or early death, or a procedure is done that does not add value to a treatment. How do you engage resources to prevent overdiagnosis? Is it possible to reconcile the way physicians and patients perceive quality care? What are some solutions for this problem?


  • Evaluate the consequences of overdiagnosis and overtreatment
  • Define the medical role in the origin and prevention of overdiagnosis and overtreatment
  • Explain the background and methodology of Choosing Wisely in developing the recommendations aimed at preventing overdiagnosis and overtreatment

Conference given in collaboration with le Collège québécois des médecins de famille
