Tools for Patients

This libguide aims to collect reliable and uptodate resources that patients can easily understand, and thereby help them achieve better health.

Choosing Wisely is an initiative to help patients engage in conversations about the overuse of tests and procedures to help patients make smart and effective care choices.

The Open Access (OA)Choosing Wisely lists were created by national medical specialty societies and represent specific, evidence-based recommendations that clinicians and patients should discuss. Each list provides information on when tests and procedures may be appropriate, as well as the methodology used in its creation.

Also, the Open Access (OA)Choosing Wisely Videos feature physicians, patients, and other health care stakeholders exploring various aspects of this campaign.
