Choosing Wisely

Turning nursing expertise into informed decisions for families and health care providers

Choosing Wisely

The IPN is working with several nursing organizations to bring pediatric nurse expertise to Choosing Wisely, a national initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation. Choosing Wisely promotes informed patient-provider dialogue about appropriate healthcare treatments and tests. Families and health care providers alike benefit from this effort. 

We're in the process of submitting new pediatric nursing specific topics to the American Academy of Nursing for approval prior to ABIM submission. Pediatric nursing topics will facilitate wise decisions about the most appropriate care based on evidence-based research.
