JUST RELEASED: #RightCare Series in The Lancet

The Lown Institute has just announced the release of the Right Care Series, a collection of articles on overuse and underuse of medical care around the world, published in The Lancet:

"The full series of papers is available free to read online, along with our authors' commentary, a commentary by Don Berwick, and an editorial by Richard Horton & Sabine Kleinert of The Lancet. [The hops is that] you'll share the papers with your colleagues and others you think might be interested. You can also participate in the ongoing conversation about the papers on social media, by following us on Twitter and using the hashtag #rightcare. . .

The series is also a great opportunity to start a conversation about right care with friends and family. [They] have created a short explainer in non-technical language that lays out the key points from the article, including why it's crucial for patients and community advocates to take a leading role in decisions about how countries allocate their health resources."
