Clinical practice guidelines provide evidence-based symptom management recommendations for patient care. Guidelines incorporate published research with expert consensus on the certainty of the evidence, the balance of benefits and harms and patient preferences and values. Created with rigorous methodology, the guideline recommendations can be utilized by nurses and other oncology health care professionals, patients, and policy makers with a goal of improving care for patients with cancer.
