The organisers say:

“Preventing Overdiagnosis Evidence, Equity and Post Pandemic Health Care will be hosted by the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada 9-12 June 2022.

As well as academic abstracts we are accepting written pieces according to your observations of, clinical/other work or related/lived experiences of Overdiagnosis. You might have a project proposal you are seeking collaborators for and would like feedback on before submitting for funding. Written pieces will be considered for presenting in a panel/seminar format with other related submissions.

We are accepting abstracts against the following themes, however this list is by no means exhaustive and we welcome research abstracts and written perspective submissions on all aspects of Preventing Overdiagnosis:

  • Equity & Equality: disparities in healthcare provision, marginalized populations, conflicts of interest driving inequity
  • Sustainability and lessons learned from COVID-19: repurposing healthcare after a pandemic
  • Medicalizing citizens: the harms of screening, disease thresholds, industry influences, the role of media
  • The role of specialists in generating Overdiagnosis and their efforts to mitigate it
  • Clinical Practice: Other dimensions of ODx, overtesting and the harms of too much medicine”
