How this list was created:

ANDRIA – Italian Association for the Promotion of appropriate care in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatal Medicine, according to the indications of the project of Slow Medicine “Doing more does not mean doing better”, has chosen topics that met these criteria: interventions of documented low efficacy, risk of harm and of widespread use in Italy. For each topic a working team was instituted that presented and discussed the results during our annual national congress in 2014, entirely dedicated to the project (see www.associazioneandria.it), and these five recommendations were chosen thereafter.
