Description: Low-value practices lack robust evidence or have no benefit; some of these practices may even be harmful, waste time and money. Therefore, ceasing low-value practices is a priority in health. When people are treated with rehabilitation, medical or nursing practices that are low-value, they consume resources that are better directed toward evidence-based care. This presentation will introduce participants to the concept of de-implementation of low-value care and where to start the de-implementation journey.  During the session, information will be given on how to identify a low-value practice. Real-world examples will be given.

Learning objectives
By the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:

  • Define de-implementation and low-value care
  • Name theories and frameworks used in de-implementation to guide health professionals
  • Provide examples of de-implementation
