Health professionals

Choosing Wisely is creating a cultural shift towards health professionals and consumers engaging in conversations about what care is truly needed – what is helpful and what is not. The right choice should be based on the best available evidence and discussion between consumers and clinicians. We are here to encourage and support clinicians, consumers and organisations who are committed to embedding Choosing Wisely recommendations and principles into practice.

Implementation toolkit

The Choosing Wisely implementation toolkit provides guidance on planning and carrying out an effective Choosing Wisely project for your health service.
