Questions to ask your doctor or nurse

Choosing Wisely was created in part to challenge the idea that more is better or in the case of medical intervention: just because we can, doesn’t always mean we should.

We think it’s a good idea for you to ask your doctors the following questions before any test, treatment or procedure:

  1. What are the         Benefits?
  2. What are the         Risks?
  3. What are the         Alternatives?
  4. What if I do           Nothing ?
