Choosing Wisely

20 Dec 2016 | Building Leadership & Capability

In 2012 the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation launched Choosing Wisely® – a campaign with a goal of advancing a national dialogue on avoiding wasteful or unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures.

Choosing Wisely aims to promote conversations between clinicians and patients by helping patients choose care that is:

  • supported by evidence
  • not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received
  • free from harm
  • truly necessary.
