First Lunch and Learn Webinar of 2018 Rescheduled for Feb. 2

The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Foundation Lunch and Learn Webinar originally scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 16, has been rescheduled for Friday, Feb. 2, from noon to 1 p.m. The topic is “Choosing Wisely: When Less is More for Your Patients: Addressing the Overuse of Tests & Procedures,” and will feature Yates Lennon, MD, MMM, FACOG.

Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and education material developed by Consumer Reports. The campaign helps health care providers and patients engage in conversations about the overuse of tests and procedures and supports efforts to help patients make smart and effective care choices.  Thanks to a grant from Choosing Wisely, the North Carolina Healthcare Quality Alliance partners with Duke Health, Cornerstone Health Care, the NCMS, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, and the North Carolina State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees to reduce the unnecessary use of antibiotics to treat viral infections in adults along with several other tests or procedures. Dr. Lennon’s webinar includes an overview of Choosing Wisely, his local experience in the Cornerstone Health Care practice, results and findings and tips on implementing the program in a local practice.
