Things Physicians and Patients Should Question

choosingwisely_webThe Choosing Wisely® campaign, developed by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation, aims to promote conversations between providers and patients by helping patients choose care that is supported by evidence, not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received, free from harm and truly necessary.


ASTRO Clinical Practice Guidelines evaluate the literature on important topics in the field of radiation oncology and provide guidance to physicians on how to best treat patients.
