The article describing the development of the international Choosing Wisely (CW) list on the Covid pandemic has been published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Healthcare – #BahianaJournals. (Brazil):
Using resources wisely in the COVID-19 pandemic: an international list of Choosing Wisely recommendations.
The list reflects international consensus on evidence-based recommendations for both clinicians and the public which were achieved through a rapid consensus building process
An initial list, created by a Canadian working group, was reviewed by a small international and Canadian group. The resulting list was surveyed by a larger number of clinicians and leaders from CW Canada and CW movements from 25 countries.
CW Italy actively participated in both phases.
The description of the development process is important as this is the first Choosing Wisely list defined through an international consensus.
