We will talk about everything from an evolutionary patient revolt, challenging professional norms in medical practice, and the widespread use of low-value care in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, where the problem of waste is a great challenge to healthcare systems. These new emerging initiatives will be explored in our podcast episodes hosted by Ray Moynihan, journalist and researcher at Bond University, and Fiona Godlee, editor in chief, The BMJ
