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.
Unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures do not add value to care. In fact, they take away from care by potentially exposing patients to harm, leading to more testing to investigate false positives and contributing to stress for patients. And of course unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures put increased strain on the resources of our health care system.
Choosing Wisely Canada is organized by a team of leading Canadian physicians, in partnership with the Canadian Medical Association. Choosing Wisely Canada is chaired by Dr. Wendy Levinson, Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto and Officer of the Order of Canada.
We would love to hear from you.
