Patients & Public

One of CWMB's goals is to support patients and the public, helping you feel more informed when making health care decisions.

Engaging in Healthy Conversations

In health care we tend to think that more is better, but this can often result in unnecessary tests and treatments. Engaging in conversations with your health care providers is an important way to be better informed about your health and your care. It’s okay to ask questions to make sure that tests and treatment will benefit your health and care.

Do I really need this test, treatment or procedure?

• What are the downsides?

• Are there simpler, safer options?

• What happens if I do nothing?

Choosing Wisely Manitoba aims to support physicians and patients, helping you to make smart and effective choices about your health.
