Choosing Wisely: Toxicology

The Choosing Wisely campaign, conceived by the National Physicians Alliance, provides evidenced-based and practical recommendations in a number of clinical disciplines to help patients and physicians make good decisions. The campaign focuses on clearing up misconceptions and avoiding unnecessary and costly interventions.

The American College of Medical Toxicology and the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology have created a list of 10 items that are relevant to primary, emergency, and specialty care providers regarding specific toxicological treatment and evaluation.

The Northern New England Poison Center has nurses, physicians and pharmacists ready to assist you. Let us help you choose wisely when a toxicology-related question arises, or even if you are unsure if it’s toxicology related.
