Guidelines--are they useful?
Epilepsia. 2006; 47 Suppl 1:62-4.E

Abstract

Antiepileptic drug (AED) guidelines are developed to improve medical decision making, to provide guidance and recommendation for patient management, to develop standards to judge or assess clinical practice, and to keep the cost-benefit ratio at an acceptable level. These guidelines are derived from evidence-based medicine (EBM), a four-tiered grading system that is used to analyze clinical trials and published experiments independent of clinical bias and experience. Although guidelines may not answer all questions it is critical that clinicians using them consider the available evidence, as well as the quality of the evidence, when incorporating the information in their decision making.
