Choosing Wisely® is a health initiative campaign that was established by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation that seeks to advance a national dialogue on avoiding unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures in 2012 [1], and then involved several other societies in the field of healthcare [2]. Choosing wisely depends on the principle of determining excessive procedures and unnecessary practices for patient care and optimizing them for the benefit of the patient. As a slogan used by different associations 'Less is more' aims the most valuable care, that is less costly but more beneficial and safe care for the patient [3].
