Re: Can doctors reduce harmful medical overuse worldwide?
The key point in this article is that doctors have a role in reducing harm and waste by avoiding over diagnosis and over treatment. The article is timely too as we are into a new global health agenda that is making a lot of noise - universal health coverage (UHC). The way forward to make UHC a reality with the demographic transition of having more people living longer is to use our scarce resources wisely and avoid waste. I hope 'Choose wisely' gains worldwide momentum among all forms of health care providers.
