Upcoming Events

2019 HQ Knowledge Exchange

Date: Tuesday Aug 20th, 2019 Noon
Location: Remote Access - ZOOM Link
Keynote Speakers: Dr. Andrew Carson-Stevens, MB BCh MPhil PhD MRCGP HonMFPH and Katelyn Balchin, MSc, MScHQ, PhDHQ Student

Topic: "When patients and their families confront the challenges of unwellness and uncertainty about the future, it is unsurprising that they can become alienated by the intimidating status and power imbalances inherent in modern medicine, overwhelmed by unfamiliar language, not least fragmented responsibility, and care complexity." - Dr. Andrew Carson-Stevens

Questions to be discussed: How do we learn, then, what matters to the patient? If, and when, this inquiry is made, how can we make sense of what we're learning?

Topic: "Recently (2018), there was a provincial patient safety incident that involved hundreds of cancer patients receiving less than their intended dose of chemotherapy. Each patient was reviewed by Medical Oncologists, and more than 90% of the underdosed patients were described as, ‘clinical harm unlikely’." - Katelyn Balchin

Questions to be discussed: Should we disclose to these patients given that it was unlikely due to underdosing? How do we handle disclosures to families if the patients are already deceased? How do we ensure this doesn’t happen again?
