Description/Overview: The intent of this symposium is to educate nurses and other health care providers about an innovative program entitled Choosing Wisely®, which focuses on assisting in achieving the Triple Aim through evidence-based recommendations, provider communication and patient empowerment. An initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation, Choosing Wisely® is working to spark conversations between providers and patients to ensure the right care is delivered at the right time. Participating organizations have created lists of “Things Providers and Patients Should Question” which include evidence-based recommendations that should be discussed to help make wise decisions about the most appropriate care based on a patients’ individual situation. The American Academy of Nursing (AAN) is leading national nursing engagement in the Choosing Wisely® campaign and has invited numerous nursing specialty organizations to create specific lists of “things nurse providers and patients should question.
