|In alignment with Cabrini’s focus on value based care, Cabrini has partnered with Choosing Wisely Australia.
Choosing Wisely Australia® is an initiative that brings the community together to improve the quality of healthcare through considering tests, treatments, and procedures where evidence shows they provide no benefit or, in some cases, lead to harm. Launched in Australia by NPS MedicineWise in 2015, in partnership with Australia's health professional colleges, societies and associations, Choosing Wisely Australia challenges the way we think about healthcare, questioning the notion 'more is always better'.
Australia’s peak colleges, societies and associations have developed lists of recommendations of the tests, treatments, and procedures that healthcare providers and consumers should question. Each recommendation is based on the best available evidence.
Importantly, they are not prescriptive but are intended as guidance to start a conversation about what is appropriate and necessary.
As each situation is unique, healthcare providers and consumers should use the recommendations to collaboratively formulate their own appropriate healthcare plan together.
A list of current Choosing Wisely Australia Recommendations is available on their website.
