Sherman, J.D., McGain, F., Lem, M., et al. (2021). Net Zero Healthcare: A Call for Clinical Action. British Medical Journal. 374:n1323.
This article identifies several ways in which the healthcare sector can support sustainability initiatives, such as clinicians having the ability to determine whether monitoring and treatment of patients can be administered at home, clinic, or the hospital, which has the highest resource and emissions intensity. The authors also explain how providing care virtually as appropriate can reduce fuel and clinic emissions.
