Program Description:  Approximately $700 billion of our health care dollars are spent on unnecessary procedures or testing. As professionals we have a responsibility to use our technology appropriately for the improvement of our patients health and outcomes as well as the impact these have on our communities.  The American College of Physicians along with ABIM and 9 other professional organizations are participating in the Choosing Wisely initiative.  This presentation will look at the current state of our costs as well as look at case based areas where appropriate testing will be discussed. There will be time for interactive discussion and questions as well.



CME:  "Physicians attending this Continuing Medical Education activity may claim TWO credits of Category I to meet the CME requirements of the Washington State Medical Quality Assurance Commission for renewal of licensure."
