Over-diagnosis can lead to over-intervention and over-prescribing, particularly among older adults.

Undiagnosing is a strategy to review diagnostic labels and remove those that are unnecessary or no longer beneficial.

Undiagnosing relies on accurate and comprehensive medical records to inform a thorough review of diagnoses

Effective communication and collaborative decision making regarding undiagnosing are essential to ensure consumer centered care.
