DESCRIPTION

Disclaimer

These recommendations published by The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) incorporate data obtained from a literature review of the most recent studies available at the time. As with all clinical reference resources, they reflect the best understanding of the science of medicine at the time of publication, but they should be used with the clear understanding that continued research may result in new knowledge and recommendations. These Recommendations are intended for general information only, are not medical advice, and do not replace professional medical care and physician advice, which always should be sought for any specific condition.

DESCRIPTION

The AGS is pleased to be partnering with the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation's Choosing Wisely® Campaign to help physicians, patients, and other healthcare stakeholders think about and discuss the overuse of healthcare resources in the U.S. The national campaign aims to help patients take a more involved role in their health care by learning to choose medical tests and treatments that are supported by scientific evidence, are not duplicative of past tests or procedures, and are truly necessary for diagnosis or treatment.
