Eschew

as in: “And Gawande is not afraid to eschew showboat subjects (thrill-a-minute stories from the OR, second-chance surgical saves) for the blander territory of seminal change: Wash your hands. Leaflet the world to get annual mammograms. Give soldiers equipment they’re likely to wear.”

Caldwell, G. (2007, April 15). Practice made perfect. The Boston Sunday Globe, p. D6.
[Review of Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande]
