Books! Books! Books! Read all about overdiagnosis, high value care and more

Of late, I have been flooded with announcements and suggestions regarding wonderful books on the topics of overscreening, the factors that drive overdiagnosis, our inability to accept death as a normal part of life, and other important currents that feed into the "Too much medicine" problem or the "Less is More" approach to solving this.

See the Books section of this website to get a taste of what is out there.

Quick hits: New collection of articles on PearlTrees

There's a lot to read out there and some lovely summer weather limiting my time to write reflective pieces. That said, I still want to develop a repository of useful articles for you.

That's why I decided to try a new format to share interesting articles. I struggled to find a service that would allow me to collect, group, annotate, and share articles (and that was still popular and well-supported, not defunct) and I think PearlTrees can manage reasonably. I'm just experimenting right now, and there are some limits but I may opt for the Premium version which allows annotation, if people find this useful. Let me know what you think!

Content ranges from articles about surgery that is unnecessary to case reports and databases of tools for health system redesign, to commentaries on planning a good death and reflective pieces on struggling to find the 'right care.'

I'll aim to update it regularly and post significant additions here.
