Wiser Healthcare aims to improve the quality of healthcare through informing clinicians and patients about tests and treatments that provide no benefit or cause harm. A large group of colleges, societies and associations have joined together to analyse tests and treatments that warrant scrutiny, examine the evidence and provide recommendations. These recommendations are then provided to the healthcare community so patients have greater understanding of what questions to ask when they next see their clinician.
