Choosing Wisely Alberta and the Physician Learning Program invite you to attend this free symposium to engage in a discussion with clinicians, patients and system leaders about how to prioritize and implement Choosing Wisely recommendations. It is part of a ground-breaking international and national campaign which encourages physicians and patients to engage in a conversation about the appropriateness of tests, investigations and treatments. The goal is to avoid unnecessary and low-value care to decrease the risk of harm to patients. Choosing Wisely Alberta is a national leader in implementing recommendations through collaborations with primary care and specialty groups. Choosing Wisely Alberta is expanding its partnership to include the Alberta Medical Association, Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.
