Spanish translations of Consumer Reports’ patient-friendly brochures are now available on the Choosing Wisely Web site. Materials include advice on appropriate use of antibiotics, treatment for headaches and back pain, and information on tests and treatments that patients may not need.
“The aim of Choosing Wisely is to facilitate conversations between patients and their clinicians about tests and treatments that might be unnecessary and could potentially cause harm,” says Daniel Wolfson, EVP and COO of the ABIM Foundation. “Consumer Reports’ Spanish-language materials bring the message of the campaign to millions of additional patients, supporting important conversations and eliminating barriers to appropriate care.”
Clinicians and patients can now search for the Spanish-language materials by selecting the check box on the search filter. Additional brochures will be posted on an ongoing basis, so continue to check back for more resources.
