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.

"Another example of patient expectations from testing: see annals Emergency Medicine 2011;58(1):1-7  by Baumann, Chen and Mills.

Patients way underestimated their radiation risks from  CT exams.

Your presentation much appreciated."

"As a NP malpractice is a reality.  I have found increase education and identifying the persons goals has been helpful in reducing unnecessary testing or medication.  This is time consuming, and in an environment where time is important this education is more challenging.  Great presentation.  It reinforces my practice of evaluating if the test is going to be beneficial, and if we do find something is the patient wanting treatment."
