ASCP’s Choosing Wisely Champions program is seeking to recognize individual clinicians, as well as pathologists, laboratory professionals, and clinical teams for their commitment to the ABIM Foundation’s Choosing Wisely Campaign.
Since ASCP joined the Choosing Wisely campaign in 2013, many participating organizations have been working to advance its ideals, which are intended to reduce test overuse and to encourage clinicians and patients to question which tests are really necessary to reduce test overuse and improve the nation’s healthcare system.
“The Choosing Wisely Champions program seeks to recognize individual clinicians for their contributions to the campaign, inspire clinicians seeking to implement Choosing Wisely in their own practices, and demonstrate how clinicians are driving health care improvement,” said Lee H. Hilborne, MD, MPH, DLM(ASCP)CM, FASCP, Chair, ASCP Effective Test Utilization Subcommittee. “Clinicians can learn from one another by highlighting exemplars.”
Nominations should include a cover letter, a description of how clinicians are implementing Choosing Wisely and examples of how those contributions are advancing the goals of the campaign. Because Choosing Wisely is focused on evidence based findings, please provide any data, metrics, articles, and impact reports if they are available. Finalists are selected based upon the responses to the criteria below and the extent of data provided.
The deadline for submitting nominations is May 31st, 2018. For more information, contact Edna Garcia, MPH, Senior Manager, Scientific Engagement and Research, ASCP Institute of Science, Technology and Policy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
