I am the Knowledge Translation Lead at Choosing Wisely Canada, a campaign to help clinicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests and treatments. I am the co-founder of Healthy Debate, a health care policy blog that is an important voice for evidence-based analysis of health care in Canada. A common thread throughout my work is an appreciation of the changing health care landscape where the expertise of patients and the public is valued as much as those of practitioners and decision makers.
