New Information for Choosing Wisely®

Aug 22, 2016

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

Choosing Wisely centers around conversations between providers and patients informed by the evidence-based recommendations of “Things Providers and Patients Should Question.” More than 70 specialty society partners have released recommendations with the intention of facilitating wise decisions about the most appropriate care based on a patients’ individual situation.

AAPM&R established a Choosing Wisely® Task Force to develop its list of “Things Physicians and Patients Should Question.” To ensure broad representation across our diverse specialty, members of this group were selected from various practice settings and subspecialties within PM&R.
