Better care. Better decision-making. Better use of resources.
The RACP is encouraging physicians to implement the Evolve Top 5 List recommendations in their work and health services. Evolve encourages physicians reflect and consider why a clinical practice will not be of benefit to a patient by asking:
- Are these low-value practices that I do?
- Are these low-value practices that I see happening?
- Are there systems, processes or expectations that encourage or drive these low-value practices in my health service?
The Evolve Top 5 Lists are also available through Choosing Wisely
in Australia and New Zealand.

All RACP specialty societies are invited to develop their Top 5 List of low-value practices. The Evolve Top 5 List development process is rigorous and robust. To develop an Evolve Top 5 List, a specialty requires a:
- Lead Fellow: Acting as an Evolve Clinical Champion and the primary point of contact with RACP
- Working Party: Small group of specialty members that drive the evidence review and Evolve Top 5 List development
- Membership Body: Provides feedback throughout the Evolve Top 5 List development process and actively engaged in implementation of the final Evolve Top 5 List.
There are three steps involved in developing a specialty's Evolve Top 5 List:
