AAP joins Choosing Wisely campaign that aims to reduce overtreatment

02/21/2013

An initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, Choosing Wisely asks physicians and patients to question whether treatments, tests and procedures are supported by evidence, free from harm and truly necessary. Each medical organization developed “5 things” that may be overused in that specialty. Avoiding unnecessary use of antibiotics and cough and cold medications, as well as reducing the routine use of CT scans and other imaging in children, made the AAP Top 5 list. For more information, visit the Choosing Wisely website or AAP News online.
