Consumers and carers

The Choosing Wisely Australia initiative is helping the healthcare community and consumers to start important conversations about unnecessary and sometimes harmful tests, treatments and procedures. We are here to support consumers to make informed decisions in partnership with their healthcare professionals in ways that suit their own preferences and personal circumstances. Choosing Wisely is challenging the notion that ‘more is always better’. The right choice should be based on the best available evidence and discussion between you and your healthcare team.
