2020 Choosing Wisely Australia National Meeting

23 Mar 2020 | by Choosing Wisely Australia

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and with the safety and wellbeing of our meeting attendees, presenters, staff and suppliers as our highest priority, we have unfortunately had to cancel this year’s Choosing Wisely Australia National Meeting.

This was a difficult decision, as the National Meeting is an important component of the Choosing Wisely Australia initiative, however in the circumstances we have made the decision that we are best placed to plan to meet again in 2021.

The abstracts we received were of a high standard, and the meeting organisers would like to thank those who took the time to submit theirs, and express our regret that we will not be proceeding with the event.

We have also had to make the decision to reschedule NMS 2020. The postponed event will still take place as a one-day symposium in Sydney later in the year and we will confirm the new event details within the coming weeks.

We want to express our support and thanks to all of those from our sector who are responding to COVID-19 and are committed to providing health care to people across Australia.

We look forward to scheduling the 2021 Choosing Wisely Australia National Meeting, and encourage you to look out for our call for abstracts early next year.
