Choosing Wisely: Advocacy Track Meeting Update – 8.14.13

This week we discussed the national campaign Choosing Wisely and emergency medicine’s role. The campaign’s goal is to have each specialty choose five evidence based decision rules to improve patient outcomes and cut-down costs. ACEP had initially been reluctant to join the campaign due to litigation concerns, but just announced they will now be participating. Our track would like to contribute and will be coming up with our own Choosing Wisely decision rules for the year.
