Kia āta kōwhiri Choosing Wisely

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

The third and final learning event was held in Nelson on 14 March 2018.

The three Whakakotahi 2017 teams presented their projects and storyboards, discussing what they have learnt and challenges they have faced.

Dr Neil Houston, clinical director for quality and safety in primary care Waitemata and Auckland district health boards, and national clinical leads Scottish Patient Safety Programme in primary care, presented a workshop on how to sustain change in quality improvement.

Aspects covered included an overview of the NHS sustainability model, discussion of potential threats that could prevent sustained change and how to overcome these challenges.

Jane Cullen, quality improvement advisor for the Whakakotahi programme, led the group in an ‘unconferencing’ session. Unconferencing is a participant-driven meeting that starts on an empty schedule and relies on the people taking part to work out a schedule by collaborative planning, allowing the attendants to explore topics from throughout the day that they want to take action on over the next 12 months to discuss with the group.
