NPS MedicineWise is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from suitably qualified individuals to join the Choosing Wisely Australia Advisory Group for a fixed two-year term from April 2018.

The Advisory Group is the primary consultative group and advisory body for the initiative, actively guiding its direction from the perspectives of clinicians, consumers and the health sector more broadly.

EOIs are invited practicing clinicians, health consumers, health policy experts and program implementation experts. Members will be appointed on individual merit basis.
