Abstract

As the use of guidelines has become more common—and the word itself overused—doubts have been expressed by some critics about guidelines’ ability to deliver on their original promise. Two broad sets of issues have been raised. The first involves the appropriateness of empirically based methods in guidelines development, and the second concerns the correctness of the statistical procedures employed in the construction of guidelines.
