Clinical Practice Guidelines We Can Trust 2 Background and Key Stakeholders in Guidelines Development and Use Abstract: Before specific consideration of standards for trustworthy clinical practice guidelines (CPGs), the committee examined the history of evidence-based medicine and guideline development. This chapter provides a brief review of modern applications of scientific evidence in the development of clinical care and evolution of CPGs in the United States and internationally, as well as a review of the major guideline developers and users today.

Fundamentally, for trustworthy guidelines to affect quality of care and patient outcomes they must be implemented; hence, the committee offers the following recommendation: Effective multifaceted implementation strategies targeting all relevant populations affected by CPGs, should be employed by implementers to promote adherence to trustworthy CPGs. Increased adoption of electronic health records and computeraided clinical decision support (CDS) will offer unique opportunities to rapidly move clinical knowledge from the scientific literature to the patient encounter.

As a central repository for all CPGs, the committee does not believe the NGC should be restricted to listing only those CPGs identified as trustworthy. However, the NGC’s contribution may be of questionable value when listing guidelines providing too little information for an informed reader to judge quality and trustworthiness. To be a constructive resource, the NGC should eliminate CPGs for which trustworthiness cannot be determined, and identify the trustworthiness of those retained. Further, the committee recommends that AHRQ pilot-test and assess the reliability and validity of the IOM’s proposed standards, and evaluate their effects on healthcare quality and patient outcomes.
