A Culture of Overtesting

Some clinicians argue that advancements in medical technology have ushered in a new era in health care governed by diagnostic tests and early screenings that may or may not be harmful to patients and costly to the healthcare system. Rita Redberg, MD, MSc and colleagues address the potential drawbacks to diagnostic overtesting, including false positives, additional unnecessary testing, and radiation exposure. These experts offer guidelines to help you make the right decision regarding when to order a test and advice for what to do instead of ordering a test. They will also tackle the issue of ordering tests to avoid malpractice lawsuits. Before you order your next diagnostic test, you need to view this course.

"Although medicine is an 'art' based upon science; a real impact factor that is often overlooked / unstudied currently is the effect of the preceptor process in training. We are strongly effected by the philosophical / ethical guidance of those from whom we have learned how to practice."
