Choosing Wisely has officially launched in the UK. The initiate which was started originally in the US and Canada is now in the UK.
It was launched by The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to promote conversations between doctors and patients. The aim of the programme is to help patients and their clinicians choose care that is:
- Supported by evidence
- Not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received
- Free from harm
- Truly necessary
- Consistent with patients’ values
