Choosing Wisely is a global initiative that has been implemented here in New Zealand along with a number of countries, including USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and some of Europe.
Accuro supports the Choosing Wisely initiative, which aims to promote a culture where patients and health professionals have well-informed conversations around their treatment options, leading to better decisions and outcomes.
Some tests, treatments and procedures provide little benefit. And in some cases, they may even cause harm. These questions can help you make sure you end up with the right amount of care — not too much and not too little. As each situation is unique, a discussion with your health professional can help you develop a healthcare plan for you.
