Choosing Wisely at SickKids

Making it Easier to Choose Wisely

It has been estimated that, in North America, 20 to 30 per cent of the tests and therapies currently requested and prescribed are likely unnecessary, add no value to care, and may even cause harm. That's why SickKids is participating in Choosing Wisely Canada, a campaign to help clinicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests and treatments.

​SickKids has produced a total of 10 recommendations that are specific to paediatric hospital patients. The recommendations developed are based on best-practices and evidence of overuse or potential harm to patients.
