Communicating Effectively With Your Patients on Key Issues

The Choosing Wisely program has a wealth of resources for physicians to more effectively communicate important information with their patients on key topics being addressed by the program. Here are links to easily understood brochures on the eight most common topics. Spanish language versions are in the works.

Do you have lower back pain?

Can antibiotics help you feel better?

Get a vitamin D test — but only if you need it

Get a bone density test — but only if you need it

Get medical tests before eye surgery — but only if you need them

Get a heart stress test before surgery — but only if you need it
