Connecticut Choosing Wisely Collaborative
The Choosing Wisely® campaign is an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation (ABIMF) in partnership with Consumer Reports that aims to promote conversations between providers and patients by helping patients choose care that is:
- Supported by evidence.
- Not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received.
- Free from harm.
- Truly necessary.
The Connecticut Choosing Wisely® Collaborative (CCWC) aims to support and connect organizations developing or already involved in Choosing Wisely® in Connecticut. The Collaborative promotes the development of a Choosing Wisely® learning community in Connecticut so that Connecticut-based programs can find and share resources and learn from and contribute to best practices at the local and national level.
The Collaborative maintains partnerships with the ABIM Foundation and Consumer Reports who together direct the national Choosing Wisely® campaign and provide support and a wide range of resources to groups like ours.
