Patient & public engagement in Choosing Wisely

Choosing Wisely International has fostered a productive collaboration of clinicians, leaders and researchers involved in national campaigns. These have resulted in peer reviewed resources that spread the message of Choosing Wisely and raise awareness about the harms of overuse, along with potential strategies to address this quality problem.

​A new Toolkit about engaging patients and the public in Choosing Wisely has been published. It includes brief case studies of patient and public engagement in Choosing Wisely campaigns, including in Australia. Twenty-eight cases from 12 countries describe ways campaigns have partnered, engaged, empowered and informed patients, consumers and the public.
