By having conversations about unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures, Choosing Wisely Canada aims to help physicians and patients make smart, effective choices and ensure high-quality care.

Most clinical information resources are online textbooks written by experts who make recommendations based on opinion and experience, rather than on empirical evidence. DynaMed is different. It’s a tool that has been developed by a community of clinicians who synthesize the evidence and provide objective analysis in an easily-digestible format.
The DynaMed methodology for creating content is based on evidence-based medicine principles and best practices with a commitment to providing unbiased information to help guide physicians in their decision-making process. One-click access to full-text articles makes it easy for users to read the original research. Designed to be interactive, DynaMed pushes information to users via alerts so they know when information has been updated. And best of all, DynaMed can be accessed anytime, anywhere from any device or system including mobile devices, tablets and EMRs.
