Choosing Wisely

A very interesting initiative has been undertaken by a large number of medical professional bodies in the US. Termed Choosing Wisely, 9 societies have each listed 5 procedures which they believe are overused, and which they feel need some consideration and discussion prior to being used. To learn more, check out IHI WIHI on May 17th which will discuss tis in more detail. As Churchill said about the US,

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.”

Listen in, it;'s free and promises to provoke some thinking
