You will be hearing more about Choosing Wisely, an initiative of the ABIM Foundation that aims to promote conversations between patients and physicians and help patients choose care that is supported by evidence, not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received, free from harm, and truly necessary. Visit and explore their website www.choosingwisely.org and you we get some great information that will stimulate questions to ask of your medical provider. Consumer Reports’ Advice on a number of topics is also part of the site. Well worth the read.
We at Key Compounding Pharmacy have always advocated for the patient to take charge of his/her medical care. Choosing Wisely will help do that. What you read is not intended to be medical advice but to give you the information you need to ask the right questions of your medical provider and then mutually make decisions about that care.
