5  Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation to help physicians and patients engage in conversations about the overuse of tests and procedures and support physician efforts to help patients make smart and effective care choices.  Choosing Wisely recommendations should not be used to establish coverage decisions or exclusions. Rather, they are meant to spur conversation about what is appropriate and necessary treatment. As each patient situation is unique, physicians and patients should use the recommendations as guidelines to determine an appropriate treatment plan together 5

6 Focus groups with physicians revealed they:  Recognize there are a lot of unnecessary tests and procedures  Do not see themselves as the problem - responding to patient requests for more tests and procedures  Do not consider themselves “stewards” of resources  Want to do the right thing for their patients - deliver the best care possible and not cause undue harm  Want to be part of the solution, and terms like “wise choices” resonated
