Choosing Wisely guidelines were developed by medical specialty societies to support the delivery of safe, cost effective care. The purpose of these guidelines is to promote discussion between clinicians and patients about care that is:

  • Supported by evidence
  • Not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received
  • Free from harm
  • Truly necessary

Please see below the guidelines germane your own medical specialty, or visit the Choosing Wisely website for more information.
