Choosing Wisely Australia: New dermatology recommendations

The Australasian College of Dermatologists (ACD) is pleased to announce its support of Choosing Wisely Australia®. The initiative of NPS Medicinewise enables health providers, consumers and healthcare stakeholders to start important conversations about unnecessary tests, treatments and procedures, where evidence shows they provide no benefit.

Today, as part of the ACD’s new partnership with Choosing Wisely Australia®, the ACD has released five new positions statements. Three of the ACD’s five recommendations, introduce new guidelines to ensure the appropriate use of antibiotics in: lower limb bilateral redness and swelling; epidermal cysts; and acne vulgaris.
