Anaerobes in pelvic inflammatory disease: implications for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. (1/8935)

In preparing the 1998 sexually transmitted disease treatment guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we reviewed evidence regarding the need to eradicate anaerobes when treating pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Anaerobes are present in the upper genital tract during an episode of acute PID, with the prevalence dependent on the population under study. Vaginal anaerobes can facilitate acquisition of PID and cause tissue damage to the fallopian tube, either directly or indirectly through the host inflammatory response. Use of several broad-spectrum regimens appears to result in excellent clinical cure rates, despite the fact that some combinations fall short of providing comprehensive coverage of anaerobes. There are limited data on the long-term effects of failing to eradicate anaerobes from the upper genital tract. Concern that tissue damage may continue when anaerobes are suboptimally treated has prompted many experts to caution that therapeutic regimens should include comprehensive anaerobic coverage for optimal treatment of women with PID.  (+info)

Management of asthma and COPD patients: feasibility of the application of guidelines in general practice. (3/8935)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the feasibility of the application of guidelines to the management of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by assessing compliance with the guidelines and listing the barriers general practitioners (GPs) encountered during implementation. Insight into the feasibility of individual items in the guidelines can guide implementation strategies in the future and, if necessary, support revision of the guidelines. DESIGN: Descriptive study of care delivered during the implementation of guidelines by means of documentation of the care provided, education, feedback on compliance and peer review. SETTING: General practice. STUDY PARTICIPANTS: Sixteen GPs in 14 general practices. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Compliance was expressed as the percentage of patients per practice managed by the GPs according to the guidelines. For each patient (n=413) data were collected on the care delivered during the first year of the implementation. Barriers encountered were derived from the summaries of the discussions held during the monthly meetings. RESULTS: The GPs were most compliant on the items 'PEFR measurement at every consultation' (98%), 'allergy test' (78%) and 'advice to stop smoking' (82%), and less compliant on the items 'four or more consultations a year' (46%), 'ordering spirometry' (33%), 'adjustment of medication' (42%), 'check on inhalation technique' (38%) and referral to a chest physician (17%) or a district nurse (5%). The main barriers were the amount of time to be invested, doubts about the necessity of regular consultations and about the indications for ordering spirometry and for referral to a chest physician or a district nurse. CONCLUSION: Although the feasibility was assessed in a fairly optimal situation, compliance with the guidelines was not maximal, and differed between the individual items of care. Suggestions are given for further improvements in compliance with the guidelines and for revision of the guidelines.  (+info)

Investigating fatigue of less than 6 months' duration. Guidelines for family physicians. (4/8935)

OBJECTIVE: To develop an evidence-based systematic approach to assessment of adult patients who present to family physicians complaining of fatigue of less than 6 months' duration. The guidelines present investigative options, making explicit what should be considered in all cases and what should be considered only in specific situations. They aim to provide physicians with an approach that, to the extent possible, is based on evidence so that time and cost are minimized and detection and management of the cause of the fatigue are optimized. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: MEDLINE was searched from 1966 to 1997 using the key words "family practice" and "fatigue." Articles about chronic fatigue syndrome were excluded. Articles with level 3 evidence were found, but no randomized trials, cohort studies, or case-control studies were found. Articles looking specifically at the epidemiology, demographics, investigations, and diagnoses of patients with fatigue were chosen. Articles based on studies at referral and specialty centres were given less weight than those based on studies in family physicians' offices. MAIN MESSAGE: Adherence to these guidelines will decrease the cost of investigating the symptom of fatigue and optimize diagnosis and management. This needs to be proved in practice, however, and with research that produces level 1 and 2 evidence. CONCLUSIONS: Adults presenting with fatigue of less than 6 months' duration should be assessed for psychosocial causes and should have a focused history and physical examination to determine whether further investigations should be done.

Voluntary euthanasia under control? Further empirical evidence from The Netherlands. (5/8935)

Nineteen ninety-six saw the publication of a major Dutch survey into euthanasia in the Netherlands. This paper outlines the main statistical findings of this survey and considers whether it shows that voluntary euthanasia is under effective control in the Netherlands. The paper concludes that although there has been some improvement in compliance with procedural requirements, the practice of voluntary euthanasia remains beyond effective control.  (+info)

Slippery slopes in flat countries--a response. (6/8935)

In response to the paper by Keown and Jochemsen in which the latest empirical data concerning euthanasia and other end-of-life decisions in the Netherlands is discussed, this paper discusses three points. The use of euthanasia in cases in which palliative care was a viable alternative may be taken as proof of a slippery slope. However, it could also be interpreted as an indication of a shift towards more autonomy-based end-of-life decisions. The cases of non-voluntary euthanasia are a serious problem in the Netherlands and they are only rarely justifiable. However, they do not prove the existence of a slippery slope. Persuading the physician to bring euthanasia cases to the knowledge of the authorities is a problem of any euthanasia policy. The Dutch notification procedure has recently been changed to reduce the underreporting of cases. However, many questions remain.  (+info)

How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals. (7/8935)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

When do HIV-infected persons start with antiretroviral therapy? A retrospective analysis of patients' monitoring and treatment status in general practice, as compared with the 1991 Dutch HIV treatment guidelines. (8/8935)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to compare, in a sample of Amsterdam general practices, the monitoring and treatment status of HIV-infected patients according to the 1991 Dutch consensus guidelines for antiretroviral treatment of HIV-infection, which advise that therapy be started at a peripheral blood CD4+ cell count of < or = 300 x 10(6)/l in asymptomatic patients, or < or = 400 x 10(6)/l in symptomatic patients. METHOD: In 1994, data were collected from the records of all 511 HIV-infected patients registered in 14 Amsterdam general practices (20 doctors). The main outcome measures were the antiretroviral treatment status of all patients who were eligible for treatment, and the disease stage and CD4+ cell counts at the onset of therapy for patients who started treatment after publication of the 1991 guidelines. RESULTS: For 472 patients, data were available on CD4+ cell measurement status and disease stage. For 15.9% of patients, CD4+ cells had never been measured; most of them were asymptomatic. In 84.1 % of patients, CD4+ cells had been measured. Of the 8.9% of patients whose results were not known to GPs, 93% were treated by a specialist and 76% were symptomatic. Of the remaining 355 (75.2%) patients whose CD4+ count and disease status were known, 201 (56.7%) met the guideline criteria for treatment. Of these, 53.7% received treatment, 27.4% were never treated and 18.9% had discontinued treatment. Of the 67 patients who started treatment after publication of the guidelines, 36.2% of asymptomatic patients and 92.8% of symptomatic patients started later than the guidelines advised. CONCLUSION: In the population studied, we found a discrepancy between the 1991 treatment guidelines and the actual situation. In a substantial proportion of eligible patients, antiretroviral treatment was either not administered at all or was administered at a (very) late disease stage. This can only be attributed to physicians' and/or patients' attitudes towards antiretroviral treatment. Other studies confirm that a number of psychological factors may influence treatment decisions. The new combination treatment of HIV-infection requires an early start and compliance with the guidelines. The degree to which doctors and patients are willing and able to comply with the guidelines is an important factor to be taken into account, both in research and in the development of guidelines.  (+info)

Previous guidelines for the management of asthma produced by the British Thoracic Society and others have been disseminated widely and have been influential on the approach to asthma management in the United Kingdom and internationally. The latest full version was produced in 1993,1 with a review and position statement in 1995.2 The coordinating committee at that time predicted that the next revision would be a rewrite in 1997-8, so a new version is overdue. When we reviewed the 1993 guidelines we pointed out a lack of clarity on the evidence base and the need for expert opinion where evidence is lacking.3 Both of these areas are addressed in the new guidelines4 through the methods and format familiar from the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network ( The new British guidelines have been produced jointly by the British Thoracic Society and Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network, in collaboration with various other bodies.. The levels of evidence and grades of ...
The authors who recently reviewed the barriers that inhibit the implementation of hypertension management guidelines in Canada1 neglected to mention what might be one of the most important factors: the powerful influence of pharmaceutical manufacturers marketing campaigns on physician practice patterns.2 The freebie phenomenon was addressed in a news item in the same issue of CMAJ in which the review appeared.3 Flip through the pages of that particular issue and you will come across 5 glossy advertisements promoting angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors or AT1 receptor blockers in the treatment of hypertension. Clinical practice guidelines are reflected only in footnotes in tiny print stating that the drugs being advertised are indicated when treatment with diuretics or β-blockers is ineffective or not appropriate.. If the groups that create clinical practice guidelines are wondering how to influence physicians practices more effectively across the country, perhaps they should take a ...

The Choosing Wisely campaign has spread to many countries. Methods for developing recommendations are inconsistent. We describe our process of developing such recommendations from a comprehensive national set of clinical practice guidelines (Current Care, CC) and the results of a one-year Choosing Wisely Finland project. Two of the authors drafted the quality and process criteria for all the Choosing Wisely Finland recommendations. The quality criteria were relevance, feasibility, evidence-based and strength. These were discussed in editors meetings and subsequently revised. Two different processes for developing recommendations within national clinical practice guidelines were designed and piloted (processes A and B). Process A was based on a published guideline. The recommendations are drafted by an editor and revised and approved by the guideline development group. In process B the development of the recommendations is integrated with guideline production or update. Choosing Wisely recommendations

An ASCO clinical practice guideline update, reported by Khorana et al in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, includes the recommendation of gemcitabine-capecitabine doublet therapy as an adjuvant therapy option in potentially curable pancreatic cancer. The updated recommendation (4.1) modifies the corresponding recommendation in the ASCO guideline published in May 2016. The remaining recommendations from the original 2016 ASCO guideline are unchanged.. New Evidence. The ASCO guideline expert panel based the update on findings in the recently reported phase III ESPAC-4 study, in which 730 evaluable patients with resected pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma were randomized to receive gemcitabine plus capecitabine or gemcitabine alone. Median overall survival was 28.0 months in the doublet group vs 25.5 months in the gemcitabine-alone group (hazard ratio = 0.82, P = .032). Grade 3 and 4 adverse events were similar in both groups, although the doublet group had higher rates of hand-foot syndrome and ...

Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) are graded recommendations on best practice for a specific condition based on the systematic review and evaluation of the quality of the scientific literature. These documents are defined by a stringent methodology and formal process for development. Clinical practice guidelines are required to bridge the gap between evidence and recommendation and are comprised of both evidence-based and expert-based information to guide clinical practice decision-making. Although variation can exist, all must meet standard criteria and follow a defined policy and procedure. The Director of Practice works with the Evidence-based Documents Committee to identify CPG topics, formulate CPG work groups, and oversee the development of a CPG. When a CPG is close to completion the, the Practice Committee creates and overses a Knowledge Translation (KT) taskforce that works for 1-2 years to create tools, processes and strategies for dissemination, implementation of the CPG.

JNCCN-The Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, Special Edition: NCCN Oncology Pharmacy & Policy is a new, special edition of JNCCN that focuses primarily on issues related to pharmacy and drug policy in the United States. Increasingly, the oncology practitioner must keep abreast of not only the clinical but also the regulatory aspects of oncology care. These regulations have the potential to significantly impact practitioner workload and how care is delivered to people with cancer. JNCCN Special Edition: NCCN Oncology Pharmacy & Policy provides viewpoints on and a forum to discuss these issues. For example, this first issue focuses on a subject currently being discussed at the national level and likely to extensively affect hospitals and oncology practices: Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS)..

Among the new recommendations are the following:. • Physicians should perform a systematic assessment on all infants, prior to discharge, for subsequent risk of severe jaundice.. • Physicians should instruct the infants parents to schedule a follow-up visit at three to five days of age, when the infants bilirubin level is highest.. • Physicians should recommend that mothers breastfeed at least eight to 12 times a day for the first ...
BACKGROUND: Risk-stratified treatment recommendations facilitate treatment decision-making that balances patient-specific risks and preferences. It is unclear if and how such recommendations are developed in clinical practice guidelines (CPGs). Our aim was to assess if and how CPGs develop risk-stratified treatment recommendations for the prevention or treatment of common chronic diseases. METHODS: We searched the United States National Guideline Clearinghouse for US, Canadian and National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (United Kingdom) CPGs for heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes that make risk-stratified treatment recommendations. We included only those CPGs that made risk-stratified treatment recommendations based on risk assessment tools. Two reviewers independently identified CPGs and extracted information on recommended risk assessment tools; type of evidence about treatment benefits and harms; methods for linking risk estimates ...

Although the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE) instrument (described in Chapter 1 of the original guideline document, Evidence-based Geriatric Nursing Protocols for Best Practice, 4th ed.) was created to critically appraise clinical practice guidelines, the process and criteria can also be applied to the development and evaluation of clinical practice protocols. Thus, the AGREE instrument has been expanded (i.e., AGREE II) for that purpose to standardize the creation and revision of the geriatric nursing practice guidelines.. The Search for Evidence Process. Locating the best evidence in the published research is dependent on framing a focused, searchable clinical question. The PICO format-an acronym for population, intervention (or occurrence or risk factor), comparison (or control), and outcome-can frame an effective literature search. The editors enlisted the assistance of the New York University Health Sciences librarian to ensure a standardized and efficient ...
German oncologists generally adhere to the German S3 guidelines, which are consensus guidelines based on an elaborate formal evidence assessment where official evidence tables are published together with the guideline. International guidelines, such as the ASCO or ESMO guideline, are also taken into consideration in the process of the German guideline development, with the goal of an international harmonization of the guidelines. The German guideline for pancreatic cancer [13], which was published in 2013, is presently being revised in an elaborate process. In the meantime, many German oncologists refer to international guidelines, such as the NCCN guidelines, for more recent recommendations [14].. The case vignette in our study referred to a 64-year-old patient with locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (LAPC) and a supposed Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status between 1 and 2. According to US guidelines, patients who have LAPC and an ECOG of 0 or 1 together with a ...

The WHO defines guidelines as systematically developed evidence-based statements which assist providers, recipients and other stakeholders to make informed decisions about appropriate health interventions. Guidelines have been increasingly used to provide guidance for policies or public health interventions, changes in resource availability or access to services based on evidence.1 There is evidence that the methodological quality of guidelines has slowly improved over the last decades.2-4 However, most guideline developers do not have enough resources for developing high-quality de novo guidelines.5 Most low/middle-income countries still do not have formal organisations, technical capacity or collaborations to develop evidence-based guidelines.6 When guidelines are developed in those settings, their quality is typically poor.7-13 Adapting published high-quality evidence-informed guidelines becomes a more efficient option.14-16 Adaption of guidelines means the use of existing trustworthy ...

TY - GEN. T1 - EBCPG. T2 - 9th International Congress on Nursing Informatics, NI 2006. AU - Yang, Wen Wen. AU - Chiang, I-Jen. PY - 2006. Y1 - 2006. N2 - Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPG) have been recognized as an important guide to physicians for decision-making. These guidelines can assist physicians in giving good clinical care to their patients. Based on the overall healthcare improvements, medical care quality can be preserved while practice discrepancies and errors can be eliminated. Clear representation and accessible guideline content at the point care are also critical. One way to make implementation easier is through computerized and visualized guidelines combined with evidence-based literature. Therefore, this paper presents a computerized guideline system, EBCPG, which is composed of three main components: CPGs exploration, EBM exploration and Web-base management to accommodate clinician decision-making and maintainability. Two tasks based on CPGs exploration and ...
STS Clinical Practice Guidelines are intended to assist physicians and other health care providers in clinical decision-making by describing a range of generally acceptable approaches for the diagnosis, management, or prevention of specific diseases or conditions. These guidelines should not be considered inclusive of all proper methods of care or exclusive of other methods of care reasonably directed at obtaining the same results. Moreover, these guidelines are subject to change over time, without notice. The ultimate judgment regarding the care of a particular patient must be made by the physician in light of the individual circumstances presented by the patient.. STS Systematic Reviews are intended to compliment clinical practice guidelines in assisting physicians and other health care providers in clinical decision-making by evaluating the strength of evidence regarding particular treatments, and determining whether the level is sufficient enough to make recommendations for clinical ...

Background: Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) are thought to be an effective tool in improving efficiency and outcomes of clinical practice. Physicians adherence to guidelines is reported to be poor. We evaluated the relationship between generalizability of guidelines on hypertension and physicians adherence to guidelines recommendations for pharmacological treatment. Methods: We used the Sixth Joint National Committees (JNC VI) guidelines on hypertension to evaluate our hypothesis. We evaluated the evidence from controlled clinical trials on which the JNC VI bases its recommendation, and compared the population enrolled in those trials with the American hypertensive population. Data on this population came from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey III. Results: Twenty-three percent of the NHANES population had a diagnosis of hypertension, 11% had hypertension requiring drug treatment according to the JNC VI. Only half of the population requiring treatment would have been ...
Patients with hip fractures have high morbidity and mortality, which has not changed significantly since last two decades. There are various national guidelines in UK, which give guidance to help improve outcomes in these patients such as National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellences guidelines (NICE), Guidelines from Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) and Scottish intercollegiate guideline network (SIGN). NICE guidelines recommend total hip replacement (THR) rather than hemiarthroplasty in patients with a displaced intracapsular hip fracture in selected patients. AAGBI has produced guidelines for Management of Proximal Femoral Fractures 2011.
During the first decade of the ACC/AHA Guidelines effort, other organizations often played a collaborative role. This included providing representatives to the writing committee, designating reviewers from their organization, formally endorsing the guideline, and, occasionally publishing the guideline in their own journal. Although this was a useful model, the ACC/AHA Task Force on Practice Guidelines gradually recognized that it was an inadequate one. Patients with cardiovascular disease often receive care from general internists and family medicine physicians. Thus, it was imperative that those organizations be included to a greater degree. In addition, there was a clear need for medicine to speak with one voice. Other organizations, including the cardiovascular subspecialty organizations and the ESC, were publishing an increasing number of clinical practice guidelines that overlapped in content with the ACC/AHA Guidelines.. The initial effort to involve other organizations in a full ...

Physical attractiveness or unattractiveness wields a tremendous impact on the social and psychological components of life. Many individuals with facial deformities are treated more negatively than normal individuals, which may affect their self-image, quality of life, self-esteem, interpersonal encounters, and ultimately, success in life. Malformations that do not create physiological problems and whose major health impact is to degrade physical attractiveness and engender psychosocial consequences are insufficiently understood and not considered functional problems by medical insurance companies. As part of a clinical practice guideline development process for psychosocial concerns in Freeman-Burian syndrome, manuscripts describing psychosocial considerations related to the presence of non-intellectually impairing craniofacial malformation conditions or associated clinical activities are sought, especially focusing on epidemiology, prevention, symptoms, diagnoses, severity, timing, treatment,
AbstractIntroduction: Two 2-day continuing education seminars were developed to address the orthopedic physical therapy deficits in the country of Guyana. Material was presented in a way to address all stages of behavior change.Methods: Surveys evaluating pre- and post-seminar knowledge was evaluated. Chart reviews to establish adherence to clinical practice guidelines were performed. Results: Pre-seminar surveys revealed minimal knowledge of clinical practice guidelines which was consistent with pre-seminar chart review data. Post-seminar data indicate improvements in both knowledge and adherence to guidelines.Discussion: A brief series of two 2-day seminars utilizing behavior change strategies to improve adherence to clinical practice guidelines shows promise for countries and regions that rely on international health volunteers to provide clinical instruction. Because this study is limited to one situation, further studies with longer follow-up in a variety of clinical settings are recommended to
In a report published May 27 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Mark Neuman, MD, MSc, Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, and his colleagues examined the lasting strength of class I - i.e. procedure/treatment should be performed/administered - recommendations across serial versions of selected American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines, and found that durability of the guidelines varied across individual guidelines and levels of evidence.. Identifying 619 class I recommendations in 11 index guidelines published between 1998 and 2007, the investigation found that 495 recommendations (80.0 percent) were retained in the subsequent guideline version, 57 (9.2 percent) were downgraded or reversed, and 67 (10.8 percent) were omitted. The ultimate percentage of recommendations that were retained varied across guidelines from 15.4 percent to 94.1 percent.. The endurance of individual ...
A multidisciplinary task force developed and implemented a skincare programme. Two key initiatives ran concurrently: design and implementation of skincare programmes on the clinical units and systematic assessment of pressure ulcer prevalence. The skincare task force, led by the director of nursing research and quality improvement, reviewed the research and existing evidence-based clinical guidelines such as the 1992 US Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) Clinical Practice Guideline on pressure ulcers in adults.2. The task force considered the AHCPR practice guideline to be a credible source. Convened by a prominent health association, the guideline was developed by a multidisciplinary panel which reviewed the research and graded the evidence. It offered a standard for evidence-based practice. Although fortunate to have a current clinical practice guideline available, most of the guideline recommendations were supported by level C evidence indicating that they were drawn from ...
Background:. The purpose of this study is to design and evaluate targeted implementation strategies to fully integrate the VHA clinical practice guidelines for ischemic heart disease into VHA clinical practice. Effectively implementing the guideline will enhance the quality, appropriateness, timeliness, and cost effectiveness of care delivered to veterans with ischemic heart disease.. Objectives:. The long-term objective of this study is to identify the best strategies for implementing the IHD guidelines to improve guideline adherence and provider acceptance. The specific objectives of the study are to: 1) describe the temporal aspects of guideline acceptance and adherence over three periods of time: pre-implementation, post-implementation of general strategies, and post- implementation of targeted strategies; 2) assess the relative effectiveness of targeted intervention strategies on guideline adherence; 3) identify the relationships among provider beliefs, attitudes, and their intentions to ...
The in-patient treatment unit is based in a large psychiatric hospital that is currently being redeveloped, and there has been considerable discussion regarding the future location of the unit, including the level of medical care required. Our research objectives emerged from informal discussions among medical and nursing staff, reflecting on an anecdotal impression that the in-patient unit was treating patients with ever-increasing medical complexity. It is not uncommon for patients to be transferred directly to a general hospital at the point of admission, or shortly afterwards, owing to the severity of their physical condition. The data presented here support this impression.. The unit has based its admission criteria on a since-withdrawn guideline from the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) - guideline no. 74.9 It outlines the patient characteristics that are likely to make community detoxification suitable and, conversely, situations where in-patient detoxification would be ...
In the United Kingdom, there is very little formal competency based training in the techniques of paediatric procedural sedation except in the specialty of dentistry.1,2 Procedural sedation is often delegated to junior medical staff using a local protocol. The procedures for informed consent, documentation, monitoring, recovery, follow up, and audit are varied and often non-existent. This situation is changing as new clinical governance and training systems are put in place. In Scotland, the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) has produced a multidisciplinary, evidence based, peer reviewed guideline for the management of paediatric procedural sedation.3 The consensus view of this group was that, in Scotland, ketamine (and agents such as propofol, fentanyl, alfentanil, and remifentanil) should only be used by those trained in and with adequate on-going experience of paediatric anaesthesia and/or intensive care. It should only be used in a hospital setting. The product licence (and ...

The aim of the clinical practice guidelines is to develop recommendations that are based on good research evidence.[11,12] The majority of the recommendations in this area are based on fair research evidence or on expert consensus. This was evident also in the ASPEN Guidelines in Nutrition Support5 since only 16% of the recommendations were judged to be based on good research-based evidence (meta-analysis of RCTs or single RCTs), 29% on fair researchbased evidence (well-designed controlled or non-controlled studies without randomisation, non-experimental studies such as comparative, correlational or case studies) and finally 55% on expert opinion alone. A similar percentage also applies to the present ESPEN clinical practice guidelines. However, this should not classify the recommendations of these guidelines as poorquality statements. It simply reflects the fact that the gold standard methodology to scientifically validate a drug or a therapy (the RCT) cannot always be used to investigate the ...
Background: Acute diarrhea in children is associated with high morbidity globally and with high mortality in undeveloped countries. The Colombian Ministry of Health included childhood diarrhea among the conditions for which new national guidelines are being developed. Before developing a clinical practice guideline (CPG) it is advisable to assess published guidelines to consider its adaptation. The quality of published guidelines on childhood diarrhea has not been assessed.. Objective: To assess its quality of CPG on acute diarrhea or gastroenteritis in children using the AGREE-II instrument.. Methods: We searched electronic databases, national clearinghouses and non-electronic sources until august 2011. Each guideline retrieved was independently assessed using AGREE-II (Spanish version) by three clinical epidemiologists.. Results: We found 63 guidelines, 17 of which (26.9%) were evidence-based. Based on AGREE-II, domains 1 (scope and purpose) and 4 (clarity of presentation) had the highest ...
In this work, we described the development of evidence-based guidelines for the care of patients with diabetes by primary care practitioners, using glycemic and blood pressure control and retinal screening as examples. The careful review and analysis of an independently prepared, evidence-based synthesis by a multispecialty panel of experts provided the best available evidence to the working group. Guidelines are meant to be applicable to large and complex health care systems and yet to empower the process of individual patient-practitioner counseling and goal setting based on individual risk stratification. The VA/DoD Clinical Guidelines for Treatment of Diabetes are intended to be a unifying standard of medical practice for the two largest agencies in the federal health care system that provide direct health care.. Some may criticize certain recommendations as being economically motivated with a design to minimize short-term costs. However, any target value endorsed by a guideline obligates ...

These guidelines are intended as an update to those published in the Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine in 2012. Since the release of the previous guidelines, the scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in southern Africa has continued. Cohort studies from the region show excellent clinical outcomes; however, ART is still being initiated late (in advanced disease) in some patients, resulting in relatively high early mortality rates. New data on antiretroviral drugs have become available. Although currently few, there are patients in the region who are failing protease-inhibitor-based second-line regimens. To address this, guidelines on third-line therapy have been expanded.. ...

Diet regimens that are low in hydrogenated fat and also cholesterol, high in fiber, and also low in salt are the best choices for a healthy and balanced diet plan. Lowering cholesterol via diet regimen alone can minimize the threat of heart diseases such as coronary artery illness (CAD) and stroke. Individuals with hypertension need to also make an effort to keep their high blood pressure low. High blood pressure boosts the threat of creating cholesterol-related problems, so it should be managed also. Ada Blood Cholesterol Guidelines. Smoking cigarettes or using various other cigarette items has been shown in countless research studies to increase LDL cholesterol levels and decrease HDL cholesterol levels. This is why giving up smoking is so essential. Other factors to cholesterol include excessive weight, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, and the existence of other threat elements, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. In addition, some medications, consisting of ...

ASCOs Guidance Products Clinical Practice Guideline: Addresses specific clinical situations (disease- oriented) or use of approved medical products, procedures, or tests (modality-oriented). Systematic reviews serve as the evidentiary basis for drafting principles of clinical care. Interpretation and extrapolation of evidence are often necessary. Consensus Guideline: A systematic review is conducted. If evidence identified is limited, inconsistent, indirect, or of poor quality, then the formal consensus-based methodology may be considered. While the decision to incorporate consensus recommendation(s) may vary, the common thread is lack of sufficient evidence. ASCO utilizes a modified Delphi process for creating consensus guideline recommendations.

Several factors contribute to the high mortality attributed to severe infections in resource-limited settings. While improvements in survival and processes of care have been made in high-income settings among patients with severe conditions, such as sepsis, guidelines necessary for achieving these improvements may lack applicability or have not been tested in resource-limited settings. The World Health Organizations recent publication of the Integrated Management of Adolescent and Adult Illness District Clinician Manual provides details on how to optimize management of severely ill, hospitalized patients in such settings, including specific guidance on the management of patients with septic shock and respiratory failure without shock. This manuscript provides the context, process and underpinnings of these sepsis guidelines. In light of the current deficits in care and the limitations associated with these guidelines, the authors propose implementing these standardized best practice guidelines while

A medical guideline (also called a clinical guideline or clinical practice guideline) is a document with the aim of guiding decisions and criteria regarding diagnosis, management, and treatment in specific areas of healthcare. Such documents have been in use for thousands of years during the entire history of medicine. However, in contrast to previous approaches, which were often based on tradition or authority, modern medical guidelines are based on an examination of current evidence within the paradigm of evidence-based medicine. They usually include summarized consensus statements on best practice in healthcare. A healthcare provider is obliged to know the medical guidelines of his or her profession, and has to decide whether to follow the recommendations of a guideline for an individual treatment. Modern clinical guidelines identify, summarize and evaluate the highest quality evidence and most current data about prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy including dosage of medications, ...
The best way to avoid being sued for malpractice is to make certain that all your patients are happy and all their outcomes are good.. Reality is seldom so rosy. Patients arent necessarily happy even when their clinical outcomes are as good as they can get. In the event of an undesired outcome, an unhappy patient may easily become a litigious one. A 2011 study in the New England Journal of Medicine estimated that 36 percent of physicians in low-risk specialties such as pediatrics, and 88 percent of physicians in high-risk surgical specialties, would face a malpractice claim by the age of 45. Those percentages climb to 75 percent of physicians in low-risk specialties and 99 percent of physicians in high-risk specialties by the age of 65.. Flaws in clinical practice guidelines. Can clinical practice guidelines protect us? We are all beset by the proliferating standards and guidelines of evidence-based medicine.
