Choosing Wisely aims to promote conversations between clinicians and patients to help ensure care that is clinically indicated, evidence-based, not duplicative, and minimizes harm.

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) selected 5 items for the 2012 Choosing Wisely recommendations to reduce unnecessary tests and treatments in the inpatient setting. Click here to access those recommendations. 
 
SHM's High Value Care Subcommittee is now identifying an additional 5 adult hospital medicine practices for Choosing Wisely 2.0.  SHM wants your input to help identify these practices and assist us in developing recommendations that will help reduce wasteful care.

The survey should take less than five minutes to complete the four questions. By entering your email at the end, you will be entered into a drawing for a $50.00 Amazon gift card as a thank you for your time and feedback.
