Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are widely viewed as a cornerstone
of current efforts to improve the quality of clinical care.1,2 At
their best, CPGs articulate clear goals of care, enumerate potentially beneficial
therapeutic approaches, and may reduce undesirable variation in care while
supporting rational clinical management of common conditions. Clinical recommendations
are often supported by evidence from well-designed randomized trials when
such information is available.3
