How this list was created:

The Italian Society of Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology (SIAAIC), after formal adhesion to the project and to “Slow Medicine”, nominated a working group of experts in Allergy and Clinical Immunology choosing among its members (both “seniores” and “juniors”). The working group members were invited to propose and share the allergological procedures with the highest risk of unappropriateness. Each procedure has been telematically (by email) discussed and finally described as in the present scheme. The current document has been approved by the Executive Committee of SIAAIC and officially presented within the context of IFIACI Congress 2014.
