Guidelines permit the translation into clinical practice of knowledge from biomedical and sociomedical research. They represent the synthesis of systematic review of the scientific literature and expert opinion on the subject. As such, they provide a useful tool for physicians, researchers in clinical and basic science, professionals working in public health and social care, patients and their families, with a view to update knowledge, improve the quality of care, the coordination of actions and related policies and planning.
