  • Choosing Wisely for environmental sustainability
  • Partnering with consumers to improve health systems
  • Reducing unnecessary care: from aged care and disability to transitions of care setting.

For NMS 2022 the theme is The ABC of health literacy. Abstracts will be accepted for the following themes:

  • How do we build a health literate organisation?
  • How can literacy principles improve medicine use?
  • How do we support those with the greatest need?

Presenting at NMS 2021 or the Choosing Wisely Australia National Meeting is an opportunity to spark discussion and showcase your work with an audience of experts from across Australia. Abstract submissions are invited for each event for lightning talks and e-posters.
