CSTM Choosing Wisely List

The Canadian Society for Transfusion Medicine (CSTM) compiled its Choosing Wisely Canada list of recommendations by putting out a call to its membership for suggested list items. Members were asked to provide suggestions, rationale and references. Once all suggestions for list items had been received and the deadline for submissions had passed, the CSTM board voted on the accumulated list and ranked the items according to our assessment of what was most important. We met by conference call to discuss the outcome of the voting and worked together to refine the wording and the order of the list items and to find additional references as required. Thank you to all who contributed! 

Short, entertaining andinformative animated videos are included with many of the recommendations. The video production was led by project director Dr. Clinton Campbell and developed with funding from Canadian Blood Services' BloodTechNet program.
