Choosing Wisely educational series

Choosing Wisely International De-Implementation Research Network arranges a series of educational meetings on key areas of de-implementation research. These would be of interest to anybody wondering where to start their de-implementation activities. The presentations will focus on how to get started, potential problems researchers will face, and solutions.

The meetings will be arranged during the year 2024. 2nd meeting will be on 25th June at 3 pm. Register here. Zoom-link will be sent to you a couple of days before. Please also register if you are not able to attend the first meeting, but are interested in the next sessions.

Speakers of the Choosing Wisely educational series

  • Andrea Patey.

    Andrea Patey

    Senior Clinical Research Associate/Adjunct Professor

    Centre for Implementation Research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute/ School of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Ottawa and School of Rehabilitation Therapy, Queen’s University

    Dr. Andrea Patey is a Senior Clinical Research Associate within the Centre for Implementation Research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and an Adjunct Professor at School of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Ottawa and School of Rehabilitation Therapy, Queen’s University. She is Co-Director of the Healthcare Improvement Fellowship at the Centre for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety/Choosing Wisely Canada. She holds a PhD in Health Psychology from City, University of London. Her research sits at the intersection of behaviour sciences and implementation research applying psychological theory and methods to explain and change health professional behaviours across a range of clinical settings. Andrea’s specific interest centres around whether implementation (starting an evidence-based clinical practice behaviour) and de-implementation (stopping an ineffective or harmful clinical practice behaviour) differ, and correspondingly, whether interventions to target each should also differ. The broad objectives of her research are to promote the use of theory and rigorous methods to improve the delivery of evidence-based healthcare through the development and evaluation of complex behaviour change interventions.
