Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation that seeks to advance a national dialogue on avoiding unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures.

Choosing Wisely was created to promote conversations between clinicians and patients by helping patients choose care that is supported by evidence, not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received, free from harm, and truly necessary.

APTA participates in Choosing Wisely to show to our members, patient and clients, and the community that we value transparency in health care and stand on our foundation of providing services based on evidenced-based practice.
