The Choosing Wisely Campaign
ASCP is proud to join the ABIM Foundation in the Choosing Wisely campaign for appropriate test utilization. ASCP is one of 37 medical societies in the Choosing Wisely campaign and is the only one representing pathologists.
Pathologists and laboratory professionals play a critical leadership role in promoting and managing the delivery and use of healthcare resources—and initiating these conversations about appropriate care with clinicians and patients. Choosing Wisely is about doing the right thing for patients and avoiding care that could harm them. ASCP is a major proponent of patient-centered care and evidence-based medicine.
As part of its ongoing efforts to collaborate in the interest of patients, ASCP will focus on appropriate test utilization for the next several years.
