Choosing Wisely New Zealand is health-professional led, patient focused, and here to promote quality care through better decisions. It is multi-professional – engaging doctors, nurses, pharmacists, midwives and other health professional groups – as part of an international community of Choosing Wisely initiatives taking place around the world. Choosing Wisely is a global initiative that has been implemented in a number of countries, including USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and some of Europe.
RNZCUC supports the Choosing Wisely initiative.
The list of NZ clinical recommendations grows, and is available on the Choosing Wisely website. RNZCUC has reviewed these and has identified several guidelines that are applicable to urgent care.
