How this list was created:

General Practitioners belonging to the Turin local section of the Italian College of General Practice and Primary Care (SIMG) has set up a specific working group. The participating physicians (14), through an initial phase of individual research and subsequent plenary meetings, identified the five practices. All these have a similar Recommendation in the Choosing Wisely list, but only one is in the AAFP (American Academy of Family Physicians) list. At the moment the Authors are carrying out a research about the 5 Recommendations on the Health Search-SIMG database. The working group also decided to combine an in-depth document to the list. About the 5 practices has been performed a CME Course for general practitioners who has been spread in several Italian Regions.
