ABIM Foundation Launches Program Recognizing “Choosing Wisely Champions”
March 25, 2016 | Aging Services Risk, Quality, & Safety Guidance
Seeking to recognize clinicians who are leading efforts to reduce overuse and waste in medicine, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has instituted a new "Choosing WiselyChampions" program, according to a March 10, 2016, ABIM news release. The program will allow participating medical societies to honor clinicians, or teams of clinicians, who advance the goals of the Choosing Wisely campaign and encourage others to follow their lead in reducing medical overuse and waste. Clinicians may be nominated for contributions such as creating interventions to implement Choosing Wisely in their facilities, starting initiatives to educate colleagues, or playing a leadership role in developing society recommendations.
