Medical colleges and professional societies participate in Choosing Wisely Australia® through developing and disseminating lists of tests and treatments thought to be overused or misused.
While members have free rein to develop their own methods for determining their lists, improved consumer care is the core objective. Each recommendation has consumer care as its focus and is strongly evidence-based.
NPS MedicineWise supports Choosing Wisely Australia members through coordinating governance, and providing tools, resources and communication support, as well as promoting Choosing Wisely Australia and your involvement.

Champion Health Services
For Choosing Wisely to have an impact on healthcare service delivery, it is vital that health services are championing the initiative at a local level. From Primary Health Networks and Local Health Districts, to hospitals and primary care practices, Choosing Wisely Australia encourages health services to engage in reducing unnecessary tests, treatments or procedures that are prevalent in their particular settings.
