Choosing Wisely Canada

Choosing Wisely Canada

  • Choosing Wisely Canada is a campaign to help physicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures, and to help physicians and patients make smart and effective choices to ensure high-quality care. Choosing Wisely Canada is organized by Dr. Wendy Levinson (University of Toronto) and the Canadian Medical Association. The campaign is physician led through participating Canadian national specialty societies. Specialty societies have been asked to develop lists of “Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question.” These lists identify tests, treatments or procedures commonly used in each specialty, but are not supported by evidence, and/or could expose patients to unnecessary harm. Choosing Wisely Canada recognizes the importance of educating and engaging patients so that they could make informed choices about their care. The campaign has created patient-friendly materials to help patients learn about the tests, treatments or procedures in question, when they are necessary and when they are not, and what patients can do to improve their health. Choosing Wisely Canada is working with various stakeholder groups to disseminate the patient materials widely. For more information please visit: https://choosingwiselycanada.org/

Their importance to human medical, nutritional, and economic security cannot be understated.

Yet globally, antimicrobials are losing their effectiveness more quickly than new antimicrobial drugs, treatments, and therapies are being identified and introduced to market.”
