  journal={BMC Health Services Research},
BackgroundHealthcare systems have difficulty incorporating scientific evidence into clinical practice, especially when science suggests that existing clinical practices are of low-value (e.g. ineffective or harmful to patients). While a number of lists outlining low-value practices in acute care medicine currently exist, less is known about how best to initiate and sustain the removal of low-value clinical practices (i.e. de-adoption). This study will develop a comprehensive list of barriers… Expand
Mapping structure, process and outcomes in the removal of low-value care practices in Canadian intensive care units: protocol for a mixed-methods exploratory study
This work proposes to map the current state of deadoption in Canadian intensive care units (ICUs) to include development of an inventory of barriers, facilitators and potential implementation strategies for guiding the deadoption efforts. Expand
Barriers and facilitators to adopting high value practices and de-adopting low value practices in Canadian intensive care units: a multimethod study
A Retrospective, population-based audit of low molecular weight heparin for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis and albumin for fluid resuscitation to compare and contrast illustrative examples of the adoption of high value practices and the de-adoption of low value practices. Expand
Exemplars Illustrating De-implementation of Tradition-Based Practices.
The de-implementation process of discontinuing or reducing the use of tradition-based practices is explored, with an emphasis on the roles of various stakeholders and the need to overcome cognitive dissonance and psychological bias. Expand
Deadoption of low-value practices in the ICU.
Attempts at deadoption should target local ICU circumstances, while still encompassing the spectrum of care outside the ICU, engage nursing more fully, promote the use of local champions, especially peers, and recognize the requirement to seek sustainability. Expand
