How Often Do You Reference Clinical Practice Guidelines? For What Use Cases? What Are Your Preferred Formats? How Do You Learn About New Guidelines? Full-Text Guidelines VS. Summarized Versions?
Research on Clinical Practice Guidelines: HCP Preferences, Usage, Preferred Formats, Adherence, & Strategies to Promote Guideline Implementation.
We launched an online survey with all these questions and distributed it to over 21,000 clinicians spanning from various clinical specialties and professions. We then measured, analyzed and compared the data and results to similar surveys conducted in past years.

One of the key questions we’ve asked to get a better understanding on how clinicians use guidelines and the frequency for each use case is “How often do you reference clinical practice guidelines for the following use cases (Decision-Support, Quick Refresher, Training & Education, Documentation & Billing/Coding, Quality Improvement Programs and CME)?”
The results were just impressive. We found that almost all clinicians find significant value in clinical practice guidelines and strongly agree that guidelines influence the way they practice medicine. The research identified the most widely used guideline implementation tools, dissemination channels and how usage preferences have evolved over the years.
For example, we know that print handouts were the most preferred format a few years ago when it comes to clinical reference tools but we wanted to learn how the rise in technology and digital platforms impacted how clinicians value and consume guidelines today. So we asked clinicians to rate the perceived value and utility of numerous guideline derivative products. And to no surprise, all clinicians rated the summary of guideline recommendations in digital format as highly valuable.
Not only did the research help us gain a better understanding on how clinicians value and engage with clinical practice guidelines but also on how to efficiently and effectively execute dissemination and implementations campaigns for all current and upcoming guidelines.
