Choosing Wisely Australia - out and about

03 Feb 2016

Choosing Wisely featured at many conferences and meetings in the latter part of 2015 and will continue to do so in 2016. It’s great to see how our members are driving the Choosing Wisely initiative.

The Australian College of Emergency Medicine conducted a Choosing Wisely workshop at their annual scientific meeting in late November. The packed workshop discussed potential areas to expand their current recommendations, along with the opportunities and challenges for implementation within the hospital setting.

Choosing Wisely was also present at the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists Annual Scientific Meeting, where RANZCR released clinical decision rules in support of their Choosing Wisely recommendations.

We have also been actively discussing participation and implementation with health service organisations. For example, we were delighted to be invited to present recently at Hunter New England Local Health District Community Partnerships Forum, and the NSW Emergency Care Institute Symposium.
