An Interdisciplinary approach to treatment
Treatment guidelines serve to make the consensus on diagnostics and therapy reliable by means of evidence, to avoid lobbying in patient care and to optimize an interdisciplinary treatment approach.
Since 1990, the Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF) and its member societies in Germany have coordinated the preparation and continuous adaptation of guidelines to the scientific state of the art in order to ensure a good medical care as a basis.
Treatment guidelines are therefore also an instruments of knowledge management, which translate applied clinical research into patient care in everyday life. They serve to systematically provide statements that reflect the current state of knowledge and facilitate the decision of the attending physician and his patients for appropriate treatment in a specific disease situation.
