Choosing Wisely Canada Recommendations: Pediatric Neurosurgery

Under the leadership of The Canadian Pediatric Neurosurgery Study Group, we are excited to announce the release of 5 new recommendations of tests, treatments or procedures that are overused in pediatric neurosurgery.

See Pediatric Neurosurgery: Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question to view the full list, including a rationale and references for each recommendation.

The Lists

Developed by Canadian national societies representing a broad spectrum of clinicians, these lists contain tests and treatments commonly used that are not supported by evidence, and/or could expose patients to unnecessary harm.
