Choosing Wisely Recommendations

A sample of Choosing Wisely recommendations:

  • Don’t routinely prescribe antibiotics for acute mild to moderate sinusitis unless symptoms last for seven or more days, or symptoms worsen after initial clinical improvement.
  • Avoid routine pre-operative testing for low risk surgeries without a clinical indication.
  • Don’t conduct imaging for uncomplicated headaches. For the entire list of tests and procedures visit the Choosing Wisely  website.
