Choosing Wisely Canada

The Canadian Hematology Society
is participating in the

Choosing Wisely Canada campaign.

The CHS is proud to announce that on October 29, 2014 we, along with 11 other subspecialty societies, released our first top 5 list for the Choosing Wisely Canada campaign.

A total of 61 new recommendations were made. Choosing Wisely is a campaign to help physicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures and to help physicians and patients make smart and effective choices to ensure high quality care.

Choosing Wisely Canada is the national voice for reducing unnecessary
tests and treatments in health care.

Thank you to all of our members.

The working group wishes to thank all of the CHS members who took the time to submit suggestions for list items. We will be in touch shortly to share with you some of our implementation strategies.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or wish to become involved in the next stages.
