Vitamin D Practitioner Ordering


The latest utilization data for Vitamin D ordering by family physicians has been received from the SDCL. Individual reports will be provided to our primary care practitioners. Considerable progress has been made with a 60% decrease in inappropriate ordering. Audits will continue.

A soft reminder approach will be used with this round of results.  It is important to note that there are still a few physicians who are not yet using evidence in their consideration of the lack of value in Vitamin D testing.
