“Desimplementar” las prácticas de bajo valor: un imperativo ético

Contenido principal del artículo

Karin Kopitowski

Resumen

La atención sanitaria debe ser sostenible. Uno de los aspectos que atentan contra la sustentabilidad es la provisión de cuidados de bajo valor. Estas prácticas deben ser desimplementadas porque malgastan recursos, ponen en riesgo a los pacientes y dañan el planeta. Pareciera que hacer foco en que los cuidados de bajo valor constituyen un problema de seguridad sería adecuado para favorecer su desimplementación.
