As The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges launches the Choosing Wisely program in the UK, I find out what other countries have already implemented the initiative.
The Choosing Wisely campaign which aims to create conversations between clinicians and patients about appropriate care and overuse. It has now spread globally and inspired over a dozen countries to develop initiatives of their own based on these ideals.
Choosing Wisely’s influence can now be found in Australia, Canada, Netherlands and much more. While some of these programs are just starting, some are already making an impact. These international efforts have also been embraced by clinicians and the public.
