The Choosing Wisely campaign seeks to reduce harm from unnecessary and low-value tests and treatment.

The Safe Surgery NZ programme was delivered by a small team at the Commission and a clinical lead.

The clinical lead, Prof Ian Civil, worked with the expert advisory group to:

  • engage with other clinical leads in the Commission
  • identify opportunities to enhance the programme.
