Kia āta kōwhiri Choosing Wisely

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

Reporting must be accompanied by meaningful analysis that leads to system improvement. Te Tāhū Hauora prefers providers use the ‘learning review’ method when reviewing harm because it is specifically designed for complex adaptive systems such as health and takes a systems approach.

A systems approach when developing learning opportunities and actions considers all levels of the system. Incorporating a human factors approach reflects the people, their tools, the tasks, the internal and external environments, the providers and their culture.

A commitment to a systems approach that is ethical, inclusive and respectful of everyone involved in or affected by harm from a product, process or system will improve sustainable learning and change.
