Quality of Care NL/Choosing Wisely NL (QCNL/CWNL) is a collaborative effort between the leading healthcare entities in Newfoundland and Labrador: we work to ensure the right treatments get to the right patients at the right time.
Our work is driven not only by the strategic direction of our partners, but also by the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, through a public, patient-centered priority setting process.
Our partnership with Choosing Wisely Canada builds upon established national guidelines and recommendations that cross all disciplines to support the reduction of low-value healthcare, particularly where harms outweigh benefits.
As a research initiative, QCNL/CWNL drives evidence-based health care practice and efficient use of resources. We encourage physicians and patients to discuss and determine the best course of treatment together by educating, raising awareness, and providing tools to guide those conversations.
We strive to be innovative in our approach and work closely with all of our partners, aligning our efforts to find the best solutions for providing the best healthcare possible to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.
