How this list was created:

After its adhesion to the Slow Medicine® program, the FADOI was asked to contribute with a list of ten recommendations. In early 2014, the National FADOI Council committed 2 of its component to elaborate a questionnaire containing a selection of the recommendations already published by Choosing Wisely® (270 from 56 north-american scientific societies, by February 2014), to be submitted to a critical number of FADOI members, in order to designate the “top ten” list. In march 2014, a list of 32 recommendations (those most relevant for the hospital practice) was sent to 1175 members (those affiliated to Piemonte, Veneto, Trentino AA, Friuli VG, Lazio, Campania), along with an explanatory letter, following the order of publication by Choosing Wisely®. Each member was asked to indicate the most relevant 5. The response rate was 18.1% (213, for a total number of 1037 indications) by the term of April 2014. This method was chosen in order to favor disclosure and sharing. The final “top ten” reflects the qualified opinion of a large number of FADOI members.

About this society:

FADOI (Federazione delle Associazioni Dirigenti Ospedalieri Internisti) is a scientific society aimed at promoting Internal Medicine and its role inside the hospitals, augmenting the medical knowledge and improving its good practice among practicioners, and developing the “disease management” culture. It also promotes sharing of the different experiences in health organization among different regions of Italy, exchanging clinical experiences across the different departments within an hospital, and encourages continuity in medical assistance of the patients after discharge from the hospital.
FADOI has established “ten points” for a sustainable and wise health care approach.
