Engaging Physicians and Patients in Conversations on Overuse of Medical Tests and Procedures
The ABIM Foundation's Choosing Wisely initiative, through a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant, awarded funding to 21 state medical societies, specialty societies and regional health collaboratives to help physicians and patients engage in conversations aimed at reducing unnecessary tests and procedures.
Let's Work Together
The grantees will work on projects to help educate practicing physicians about the recommendations from the specialty societies and help build physician communication skills to have conversations with patients about the care they need. Grantees will also participate in a learning network that will allow them to learn from one another and enhance the effectiveness of their programs.
