in 2013 the Spanish Health Ministry organized a National "Not-to-do" campaing with all the National Scientific Comitees involved, asking them to select at least 5 Recommendations in order to implement them in our Health System.
• in 2014 our SERAM (Spanish Society of Medical Radiology) developed a Guide with 38 Recommendations of "Not-to-do", mostly oriented to examinations performed with ionizing radiation,aligned with other International campaigns such as Image gently,Eurosafe , etc.... (Figure 1:Do not do recommendations of SERAM)
• in 2017, in our local environment, our regional Healt Ministry, the Public Health System of Asturias ,SESPA, in conjunction with the Regional Association of Radiologists, ARPA, after performing an evaluation of the data from the real scenario, decided to take action and started offering direct resources in managing day-to-day patients, such as conferences, leaflets and campaigns directed to the implementation of the not-to do recommendations in radiology in the different clinical settings: ER, primary general medicine, outpatients and paediatrics.
