Keynote: "Choosing Wisely: Implications, Challenges, and Controversy"

AOTA has been involved in the Choosing Wisely Campaign since 2018. The mission of the campaign is to promote dialogue between occupational therapy practitioners and clients to help them make wise decisions that ensure care is supported by evidence, not duplicative of other services received, free from harm, and truly necessary.

Join us as Dr. Gillen challenges us to look at our own practices and see if we are "choosing wisely."
