  • ACC RAC 2018 Choosing Wisely

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    The goal of this session is to empower attendees with the information and tools necessary to deliver, and instruct chiropractic students in best practice management of low back pain.

    The purpose of the Choosing Wisely campaign is to spark thoughtful conversations between patients and their doctors about the best,
    most appropriate care. Choosing Wisely is a joint effort between the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation and Consumer
    Reports.
    They feature recommendations about health care procedures that are common, but whose usefulness in some cases is not supported
    by the evidence. To participate, healthcare organizations develop a list of 5 tests and/or procedures that may be common but for whom
    routine use is not necessarily based on the best evidence available. In August of 2017, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA)
    released their Choosing Wisely list. This list focuses on the use of x-rays, back braces, physical therapy modalities and psychosocial
    assessments for patients who need longer term care.
    Since the release of this list, there has been significant controversy regarding the ACA's Choosing Wisely recommendations, including
    misunderstandings regarding how they are to be applied in chiropractic clinical practice. The ACA’s Choosing Wisely campaign creates
    an opportunity for our chiropractic educational institutions to discuss best practices in spine care, and what constitutes patient centered,
    evidence informed management of back pain.
    Panelists will begin with a discussion of the Choosing Wisely campaign, and the evidence base that informed recommendations.
    Leading experts will supplement the discussion by challenging and exploring various facets of the recommendations. This includes
    imaging related questions to consider as part of our chiropractic research agenda, an update of best practices for active care in patient
    treatment plans, and perspectives on the extent to which Doctor of Chiropractic Programs should reflect Choosing Wisely
    recommendations in their curricula. The goal of this session is to empower attendees with the information and tools necessary to
    deliver, and instruct chiropractic students in best practice management of low back pain.

  • NCLC 2018 Choosing Wisely Panel

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    The Choosing Wisely® campaign was developed by the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation to facilitate informed and collaborative discussions between doctors and patients about the necessity, efficacy and risks and benefits of common tests and procedures. The Choosing Wisely initiative looks to doctors and the societies representing them to underpin these efforts by identifying a “Top Five” list of evidence-based recommendations that draw attention to potentially unnecessary tests or therapies.

The Choosing Wisely initiative looks to doctors and the societies representing them to underpin these efforts by identifying a “Top Five” list of evidence-based recommendations that draw attention to potentially unnecessary tests or therapies.

    ACA’s Choosing Wisely list was developed after several months of careful consideration and thorough review, using the most current evidence about management and treatment options. This panel will discuss the background of Choosing Wisely and the development of the ACA Choosing Wisely statements. Additionally, attendees will hear how the panelists are implementing the recommendations into their practices.
