Choosing Wisely Canada to help physicians and patients make smart choices

from COA

In a first for Canada, nine national medical organizations, including the COA, released lists of 40 tests, treatments and procedures that patients do not need in all circumstances. The lists have been developed to spur dialogue between doctors and their patients and to ensure delivery of high-quality medical care.

The lists are based on definitive evidence that these specific interventions provide no benefit to patients. They are the foundation of Choosing Wisely Canada, a campaign launched on April 2 to help physicians and patients engage in conversations to make smart and effective choices to ensure high-quality care.

"For the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, providing high-quality care for patients is job one and the Choosing Wisely Canada initiative is an important new tool to support that goal," Dr. Edward Harvey, COA President. For more information visit www.choosingwiselycanada.org. more
