Choosing Wisely Australia
Choosing Wisely Australia is an initiative that brings the community together to start important conversations among healthcare providers and consumers. These conversations aim to improve the quality of healthcare through reconsidering tests, treatments and procedures where evidence shows they provide no benefit or, in some cases, lead to harm.
Facilitated by NPS MedicineWise, it is led by a large cross-section of colleges, societies and associations that have identified practices that warrant scrutiny, and by examining the evidence and drawing on the expert opinion of their members, have developed lists of recommendations.
