A Ray of Sensible Med Thought to Save our pocket book Midnight Special
Bishal Gyawali got a re-tweet today referring to his list of what medics should stop to avoid wounding our pocketbooks (I love his phrase "avoiding financial toxicity" for patients.
One of the low-value practices to stop was ignoring cheaper drugs in supportive care.
Even though BC is not mentioned, the list gave me some hope for the future. Also, if you can't get this on twitter, watch your sources for possible lists later of more low value behavior to drop.
Surely this will be more important if we end up short on insurance.
