The BMJ, in partnership with the Choosing Wisely international collaboration, led by the Choosing Wisely Canada campaign, has introduced a “Change” series in the Education section. Articles in the series highlight evidence based strategies and tools to help change practice and reduce unnecessary tests, treatments, and procedures. The articles indicate why and how practice needs to change, usually focusing on one aspect of care, and are aligned with recommendations made by national Choosing Wisely campaigns.
The urgent need to reduce the serious harms of overuse in healthcare led to a global movement, Choosing Wisely, launched in the United States in 2012 and now active in more than 30 countries across six continents, including the UK. Choosing Wisely campaigns are national grassroots efforts, led by clinicians in partnership with patients, other clinicians, and professional societies. They provide evidence based recommendations about changes to practice and develop tools to help clinicians implement those recommendations in partnership with patients.
