Clinical Practice Guidelines We Can Trust

Authors: Robin Graham, Michelle Mancher, Dianne Miller Wolman, Sheldon Greenfield, and Earl Steinberg, Editors; Committee on Standards for Developing Trustworthy Clinical Practice Guidelines; Institute of Medicine

“Healthcare providers may rely on clinical practice guidelines, in addition to their knowledge, skills, experience, and patient preferences, when faced with difficult decisions when treating patients. Clinical practice guidelines are statements that include recommendations intended to optimize patient care that are informed by a systematic review of evidence and an assessment of the benefits and harms of alternative care options. At the request of the U.S. Congress, the IOM developed eight standards for developing rigorous, trustworthy clinical practice guidelines.”
