The Choosing Wisely forum provides an opportunity for health professionals to learn more about how to develop and extend their Choosing Wisely work, and to hear from consumers.

We will also be assisting consumers to attend the meeting. This year we will again feature commentary from consumers on all sessions. Feedback on last year’s forum noted that the consumer presence was key to adding value.

We have some exciting keynote speakers lined up, including:

• Professor Tammy Hoffman from the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, Bond University, Queensland who will be talking about shared decision-making;
• Associate Professor Sue Crengle from Otago University’s Department of Preventive and Social Medicine, who will discuss Choosing Wisely and equity; and
• Dr Robyn Lindner, of Choosing Wisely Australia and NPS MedicineWise who will present on implementation and evaluation of Choosing Wisely.

We invite abstract submissions from those involved in Choosing Wisely work in New Zealand. Submit your abstract via

There will also be a repeat of the last year’s popular special interest groups, aimed at a wide range of health professionals. This includes an encore of Choosing Wisely 101 for those just learning about this work.

Please note earlybird registrations close on Monday 1 April 2019.
