Choosing Wisely Australia® is an initiative to improve the quality of healthcare by identifying tests, treatments, and procedures where evidence shows they provide low benefit or, in some cases, can lead to harm.

The Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) is proud to be a Choosing Wisely champion health service.
