International Guidelines Symposium
The Canadian Association of Radiologists has been actively implementing and promoting the use of evidence-based guidelines to support appropriate use of imaging services in Canada. Numerous countries are similarly active in guidelines implementation. There is much to be learned from a sharing of national and international knowledge and experience. The CAR Guidelines symposia facilitate dialogue which can improve appropriateness of imaging care, more specifically through the creation and implementation of imaging referral guidelines that are effectively applied to the varying contexts (regional, national and global) in which health care is provided.
