How this list was created:

A writing committee composed of the Directors of the Pediatrics Units of Emilia-Romagna Region was created, supplemented by experts from the same Units, and consensus on the content was reached after several rounds of review among the members of the writing committee. Each of the participants was asked to identify in daily activities one or more procedures observed during the COVID pandemic that were not beneficial to the patient at that particular time and were potentially risky. The shared text was presented to the President and Board of Directors of the Italian Society of Pediatrics (SIP) and further shared with the Presidents and Boards of Directors of the Regional Sections of the SIP.
