Choosing Wisely Champions

In cooperation with the ABIM Foundation, ASH has introduced the Choosing Wisely Champions initiative, an annual recognition of practitioners who are working to eliminate costly and potentially harmful overuse of tests and procedures. Each year, three individuals are invited to present at the ASH Annual Meeting on successful utilization strategies that they have developed and implemented in their practice, institution, or hospital system, providing clinicians, administrators, and other medical professionals with opportunities to learn about projects that might be translated to their own practices.

Meet the Choosing Wisely Champions

The 2016 ASH Choosing Wisely Champions presented their projects at the 58th ASH Annual Meeting in San Diego. Learn about their projects and explore how similar initiatives can be implemented in your own institution.

How to Apply

The application cycle for the 2018 ASH Choosing Wisely Champions will open in late-February.

Applications are encouraged from established clinicians and/or researchers and/or trainees at all levels, in both academic and community settings. Nominees are not required to be ASH members or hematologists; however, all submitted projects must address an area of overutilization relevant to hematology. Competitive submissions will have a demonstrated impact.

We are interested in projects from across the full spectrum of hematology, including adult and pediatric, malignant and non-malignant, transfusion and lab-based hematology.
