General Information

Choose Wisely

Choosing Wisely Canada uses plain language and patient-friendly materials to complement the lists of “Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question.”

These patient materials are being disseminated broadly through a variety of channels. The materials are meant to help patients learn about the tests, treatments or procedures in question, when they are necessary and when they are not, and what patients can do to improve their health.

The primary goal of the patient materials is to educate patients and to help them, together with their physicians, make smart and effective choices about their care.
