The rationing debate has generally addressed the spectrum of high-value to low-value care, with an uncertain dividing line between them. However, if there exists a category of no-value care, many of the ethical problems disappear. The Choosing Wisely campaign has been one way to address no-benefit care, although this message has not been consistently conveyed. Dr. Brody’s lecture examines the pros and cons of the Choosing Wisely campaign to date and assesses its future.
