Criteria for assessing the quality of clinical practice guidelines in paediatrics and neonatology: a mixed-method study

Abstract : Background: Evidenced-based practice is a key component of quality care. This study aims to explore users' expectations concerning paediatric local clinical practice guidelines. Methods: A mixed method approach was applied, including material from quantitative questionnaire and semistructured interviews. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics and qualitative content analysis. Data were analysed with constant comparative method. Qualitative data were parsed and categorized to identify themes related to decision-making. Results: A total of 83 physicians answered the survey (response rate 83%). 98% of the participants wanted protocols based on international guidelines, 80% expected a therapeutic content. 24 semi-structured interviews were conducted to understand implementation processes, barriers and facilitators. Qualitative analysis revealed 5 emerging themes: improvement of local clinical practice guidelines, patterns of usage, reasons for non-implementation, alternative sources and perspectives. Conclusion: Some criteria should be considered for the redaction of local clinical practice guidelines: focus on therapeutic, ease of access, establish local clinical practice guidelines based on international guidelines adapted to the local setting, document references and include trainees such as residents in the redaction.
