Goals

The program To do or not to do? will help healthcare providers make well informed choices.

For example for the most effective therapy or right diagnostic procedure. But that can also be to, together with the patient, decide not to perform surgery or do an MRI scan because the added value is low.
The program aims to collect knowledge and experience about how caregivers can stop delivering unnecessary care and how this knowledge and experience can be spread to other healthcare providers.

The program To do or not to do? started at may 1, 2015 and has three main goals:

  • Identify what care is of low-value
  • Study how low-value care can be reduced
  • Reduce eight low-value care practices
