Choosing Wisely Canada

CRA Identifies Five Practices, Therapies or Procedures Physicians and Patients Should Question

The Canadian Rheumatology Association members are dedicated to provide the highest quality of evidence based care in diagnosing, treating and managing rheumatic diseases.  As such, they have joined the Canadian Medical Association and 8 other Canadian medical societies to identify 5 practises, therapies or procedures that they see are overused and not adding value, and where there is literature to support its disuse. These are not prescriptive lists, but are meant to empower providers and patients to make wise choices in an effort to curb unnecessary testing and waste.
