Summary Points:

  • Trustworthy guidelines require transparency about purpose, process, evidence, and rationale.
  • Trustworthy guidelines require a systematic review of the pertinent evidence.
  • Expertise in evaluating evidence and freedom from financial conflicts of interest are the main requirements for membership on a guidelines panel. If these are present, then clinical skills are important.
