The symposium, at Te Papa in Wellington on Thursday 30 March, will feature Choosing Wisely International chair Professor Wendy Levinson as a keynote speaker.
Choosing Wisely focuses on areas where evidence shows that a test, treatment or procedure provides little or no benefit to a patient and could even cause harm.
Prof Levinson is also the chair and co-founder of Choosing Wisely Canada, as well as an Officer of the Order of Canada.
Many medical colleges and specialist societies working in New Zealand are engaged in Choosing Wisely and have developed a list of recommendations in relation to unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures for their area of practice. Several more are developing recommendations.
