Choosing Wisely

49 NEW Choosing Wisely Canada Recommendations by 10 Specialities

The Medical Society of PEI is working with CWC to help doctors and their patients have conversations about their healthcare and what tests, treatments and procedures may not be necessary (and could even harm). Today, 49 new Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC) recommendations by 10 specialties have been released.

Choosing Wisely Canada was launched just over a year ago, April 2014. It is a grassroots physician lead initiative modeled after the highly successful Choosing Wisely campaign in the United States. To date, over 45 national medical specialty societies, representing over 90% of physicians in Canada, are engaged in Choosing Wisely Canada and at various stages of recommendations development.
