A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO IDENTIFY AND PRIORITIZE OPTION TABLES FOR RECOMMENDATIONS IN NHG-GUIDELINES
1. Background and purpose
The Dutch College of General Practitioners (NHG) has a longstanding comprehensive guideline programme including 135 clinical practice guidelines. In recent years, these guidelines are adapted to facilitate shared decision making, including the integration of decision support tools, such as option tables. To guide the development of option tables, we identified preference-sensitive recommendations within the clinical practice guidelines, for which option tables are most needed, as resources are limited.
We systematically analysed all 135 NHGs clinical practice guidelines and selected all preference-sensitive recommendations. Based on several criteria, we then assessed for which recommendations an option table can have added value. Recommendations for which an option table is not yet available or under development, were added to the longlist. In the upcoming months this longlist will undergo prioritization by several stakeholders such as general practitioners and patient(organisation)s.
We identified 87 preference-sensitive recommendations for which an option table can have added value according to our criteria. For 10 recommendations, an option table is already available or under development in primary or multidisciplinary care. The remaining 77 recommendations will undergo prioritization. The results of this prioritization will be presented at WONCA, July 2021.
We systematically identified and prioritized preference-sensitive recommendations within NHGs clinical practice guidelines, for which an option table can have added value. This will guide us to make sensible choices for a programmatic approach of the development of option tables.
