We increasingly rely on single-use disposable medical devices, under misguided notions that they are proven safer and cheaper than reusable devices. This has resulted in increased health care expenditures, waste, pollution, and associated health damages. This also leaves health systems vulnerable to supply chain disruption and demand fluctuations. Should we move back to reusable devices?

This webinar is co-hosted by the Center for the Environment and Health at Massachusetts General Hospital and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice, and Health.
