Clinical practice guidelines aim to collect and evaluate all relevant evidence available during the development process on a particular topic to help clinicians select the best possible treatment strategy for a particular patient suffering from a particular disease. The guidelines should help health professionals in making clinical decisions on a daily basis.

One of the most important aspects of the guidelines is the homogenization of treatments in order to reduce the variability of medical practice, which is based on scientific evidence and is prepared by consensus by experts on the subject.

In recent years, internationally recognized scientific organizations and societies have published a large number of guides. Due to their positive impact since their inception, it is important to be in tune with the latest editions that are published. For this reason, Dr. Roig has made a partial summary of the guides, which facilitates quick access to a large number of them.

We hope you find it useful and we warmly thank you for visiting our website EKGDX.
