Dr Roland Grad is back again with another persuasive publication regarding POEMs that align with principles of the Choosing Wisely campaign.
I find that infoPOEMs are a quick way to learn about new developments in practice and many of the topics align well with my interest in avoiding unnecessary and harmful care. Drs Grad and Bell have reviewed last year's POEMs with that lens, and their paper offers a great source of input for Choosing Wisely recommendations, as well as a launching point for changing your own practice.
Dr Grad will be presenting the poster at the Preventing Overdiagnosis 2018 conference in Copenhagen.
You can read the full publication here, in AFP.
