TMA's Choosing Wisely Campaign Has Made a Difference

We’ve closed the books on a very successful two-year campaign in support of the Choosing Wisely® program. The TMA Foundation received a grant from the ABIM Foundation to promote Choosing Wisely among Texas physicians. The program encourages physicians to discuss with patients the wisdom of many common tests or treatments that national specialty societies have identified as frequently unnecessary or inappropriate. Ninety-three percent of Texas physicians surveyed said they will continue to use Choosing Wisely in their practices. More than 600 physicians earned continuing medical education credit from our free — and ongoing — Choosing Wisely CME Bundle.
