We thank you for your participation to the “choosing wisely survey” by the Belgian Society of Internal Medicine. The analysis of the survey has resulted in a “top 10 list” that will be soon published on the website. On the occasion of the forthcoming European congress of internal medicine to be held in Milan, a working group of the European Federation of Internal Medicine (EFIM) will gather to further discuss the development of a European “choosing wisely” campaign.
