Taking Action on Overuse Framework and Change Package

Our solution to sustainably reducing low-value care in our health care institutions? The Taking Action on Overuse Framework and Change Package.

The Taking Action on Overuse Framework and Change Package offers health care organizations a roadmap for engaging their care teams in a lasting reduction of low-value, unnecessary care. The framework identifies evidence-based strategies for obtaining buy-in, motivating behavior changes, and providing the necessary support and infrastructure for health care providers to engage and lead their peers in making the changes that improve the value of health care.

Access the Taking Action on Overuse Framework and Change Package, and follow what we're learning from partners as they apply it to their overuse reduction efforts, at takingactiononoveruse.org.   

Our Safety Net Value Champions Fellowship

This nine-month fellowship is designed to develop the competencies needed to address medical overuse in safety net health systems. We are seeking eight clinical-value champions from safety net settings who deliver direct patient care (MD, DO, PA, NP or RN). Training will be based on the Taking Action framework and on our experience implementing it. Our program will begin in early 2019, with training sessions taught by nationally recognized faculty.
