Introduction

Healthcare professionals can benefit from learning about best practices based on sound empirical evidence and a broad consensus of opinion. Clinical practice guidelines are a good resource to keep you informed of the best clinical recommendations in your field and to support the decision-making processes in patient care. Guidelines are usually published by medical associations and their content is always based on a systematic review of best available clinical evidence.
