Do clinical practice guidelines reflect research evidence?
Examines whether existing cholesterol testing clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) reflect research evidence and hence may control or reduce costs while maintaining or improving the quality of care. A systematic search for published and unpublished cholesterol testing CPGs and independent critical appraisal of the CPGs by two researchers using a standard checklist. Existing cholesterol testing CPGs are unlikely to improve the quality of care while controlling or reducing costs.
