Choosing Wisely Manitoba (CWMB) was formalized in 2014 and is led in partnership by Shared Health and the George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation. CWMB is an initiative to improve health outcomes, patient and provider experiences and health system efficiencies and sustainability, sharing the national goals of reducing unnecessary tests, treatments and interventions.
