Champion Health Services

Champion Health Services

The implementation of projects to reduce unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures for both inpatients and outpatients are helping to drive improvements in patient care and hospital efficiences. 


For example, hospitals are bringing together champions of quality evidence-based care - from specialist units, general medicine, nurses and medical trainees - under the Choosing Wisely umbrella.
