This webinar is a training feature of the AcademyHealth and ABIM Foundation Research Community on Low-Value Care.
Research and programmatic implementation of low-value care interventions in different delivery systems can illuminate what works to reduce unnecessary care in which settings. In addition to insights offered by studies and programs that demonstrate positive results, endeavors that do not work can be informative about challenges encountered in interventions and offer lessons for augmenting or seeking alternative methods to tackle overuse. However, publication bias tends to lead to emphasis on statistically significant results while overlooking attempts with null results. This webinar employs a spectrum of effective to unsuccessful interventions related to low-value care to harness lessons from strategies that work and those that have proven otherwise.
