The Choosing Wisely® Knowledge Education Group (KEG) is aimed at improving awareness of the Choosing Wisely campaign. Members will exchange ideas on how to avoid unnecessary tests and treatments and discuss how members have been able to implement initiatives at their medical centers.
The goal is to utilize multiprofessional input to judiciously use interventions across all areas of ICU care, such as imaging, labs, medications, etc. The vision is to promote patient-centered care and to reduce or eliminate unnecessary interventions that can cause patient discomfort, increased length of stay, morbidity and inefficiency in resource utilization.
