Five new changes to medical care… The American Academy of Family Physicians has a “Choosing Wisely” list of changes to medical care (that results from research results).
No routine bimanual exam (two-handed pelvic exam on females that we routinely did after a pap) in asymptomatic non-pregnant women.
Do not screen for genital herpes in asymptomatic patients.
No daily blood sugar monitoring for patients with type 2 diabetes who are NOT using insulin.
Transfuse red blood cells to relieve symptoms of anemia.
Do not screen for testicular cancer in asymptomatic adolescent or adult males.
