The European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) actively engages in the publication of high-quality, evidence-based guidance documents to support best practice in solid organ transplantation.
Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) are statements that include recommendations intended to optimise patient care, lead to better clinical outcomes, and improve cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, they provide the opportunity to identify areas requiring further research and serve an educational scope. CPGs are informed by a systematic review of evidence and an assessment of the benefits of alternative care options.
This handbook formalises the processes associated with the preparation of ESOT CPGs, including selecting topics for new guidelines, writing and reviewing approval, dissemination, and updating. Moreover, it defines the governance of the process.
