Society of Hospital Medicine

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) sought a grant from the ABIM Foundation to further the dialogue initiated by the Choosing Wisely® campaign by developing an educational platform and leveraging its chapters to reach out to its membership.

SHM will engage its membership in Choosing Wisely in a number of ways, including:

  • creation of educational webinars;
  • development of a Choosing Wisely microsite; and,
  • encouraging members to share the recommendations at their local chapter meetings and within their institutions.

A case study competition, launching in June 2014, will help highlight innovative implementation of SHM’s recommendations.

To date SHM’s members have:
