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.
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.
