RightCare Rounds is an educational initiative that incorporates evidence-based discussion in the format of a case presentation to promote appropriate patient care. This program aims to help clinicians recognize and prevent overuse and underuse, while taking into consideration social contexts and patient preferences. This toolkit provides step-by-step instructions for how to implement RightCare Rounds in any institution.

Q: Is there a way for patients to participate?
A: Yes. The patient could tell their story.
Q: Can medical students participate?
A: Yes, absolutely.
Q: How do we make this sustainable?
A: Build RightCare Rounds into the training curriculum, make it part of the culture. We will offer a session toward the end of the program on how to pass the baton to next chief resident. It could easily fill one morning report or noon conference per month.
Q: Is there a minimum or maximum number of people that can participate? Is there an ideal number of participants?
A: There is no minimum or maximum number. There should be sufficient audience to reflect on the case and generate ideas for improving care going forward.
Q: How can I get connected with other RightCare Educators?
A: We have built a platform for connection and collaboration on Slack.
Q: How can I get more involved with the work of the Lown Institute?
Q: What about cases of obvious errors or malpractice?
A: We suggest avoiding such cases for this educational program. RightCare Rounds is meant to tackle well-intended, seemingly reasonable overuse or underuse – the “business as usual” medicine that occurs everyday.
