Talking with Caregivers about Overuse: A Guide for Clinicians

Throughout the years of the campaign, Choosing Wisely by ABIM Foundation has been working to improve the critical skill of asking and answering questions about whether a test or treatment is necessary for both patients and clinicians.

As the dynamics of the conversation with patients may change when discussing overuse with a caregiver, this webinar will shed light on adding a common and important addition to the conversation. It will also guide caregivers to tools that are available to help navigate questions of overuse with the person receiving care.

PCPCC, in a partnership with ABIMF,hosted a discussion with Dr. Cate McKegney and Dr. Bill Doherty to share their insights and tools they have helped create to empower caregivers and clinicians working with caregivers.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Better understand the additional factors which impact types of conversations and how tools can improve conversation skills
  • Familiarize yourself with a podcast tool demonstrating different types of conversations between clinicians and caregivers, and discuss the decision points and tactics of both parties
  • Learn about a workshop model for coaching caregivers to have overuse conversations with their friends or family members
