Background

Bronchiolitis is a frequent viral infection presented in emergency departments and hospitals in Canada; it affects more than one third of children under two years old and is the leading cause of hospitalization in infants under 12 months old. Despite strong evidence and practice guidelines recommending supportive care as the mainstay of management for most infants with bronchiolitis, prior studies have found that many of these patients receive low-value care such as viral testing and x-rays.
