American College of Preventive Medicine

The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) fully supports the mission and goals of the Choosing Wisely® campaign. As the professional medical society for the specialty of Preventive Medicine and physicians dedicated to prevention, ACPM supports evidence- and systems-based approaches to improving health and health care. By publicizing the overutilized or unnecessary tests, treatments and practices unique to each specialty, we believe that the Choosing Wisely campaign will go a long way towards supporting primary care quality improvement, improving patient care practices and outcomes, and maximizing use of limited health care resources.
