Choosing Wisely: "We Have to Talk" - Ways to Effectively Engage Patients

Choosing Wisely® is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation in partnership with Consumer Reports that encourages dialogue between clinicians and patients to avoid unnecessary procedures, tests and treatments in health care. Join us for our three-part webinar series to learn about how Choosing Wisely can improve your organization’s performance.

In this webinar, we will explore the deliberate process used by Consumer Reports to create patient-friendly pieces based on Choosing Wisely recommendations. We will also hear about emerging work across the country to engage trainees in health care value. Our speakers will highlight the importance of bridging the gaps between patient education and clinical priorities, striving to create a high-value care culture.
