Co-creation workshops

Engaging physicians and patients to understand and explore how to support appropriate proton pump inhibitors prescribing in primary care

November 1 and November 21, 2018

The Physician Learning Program at the University of Alberta and the Digestive Health SCN would like to invite you to participate in co-creation workshops to:

  • Understand the proton pump inhibitor (PPI) prescribing and deprescribing problem from a physician and patient point of view.
  • Collaboratively analyze two evidence-based guidelines (one to help primary care physicians start prescribing PPIs, and another to help primary care physicians stop prescribing PPIs).
  • Co-create with physicians and patients a shared-decision making tool to support PPI conversations.

Location: Edmonton Clinic Health Academy, better known as the ECHA building at the University of Alberta (11405 87 Ave NW, Edmonton), room 3-099
