History of development of COVID-19 recommendations
To carry out the development of the Recommendations, the Agency appointed seven Expert Panels. Their work was coordinated by the Steering Committee, composed of the Presidium of the AOTMiT’s Transparency Council, which was responsible for the final content of the recommendations.
The recommendations were developed based on:
- the few remaining original publications pertaining specifically to this topic;
- analysis of guidelines published by international organisations and scientific societies;
- opinions of Polish experts.
The document is being updated as further scientific reports are being published on the safety and clinical efficacy of medical technologies used in the treatment of COVID-19. The updates are carried out by the Expert Panels mentioned above.
