  • Standards are descriptions of clinical practice and patient outcome to which values and judgements can be attached either by professionals or lay people.  They are used to evaluate and distinguish good practice from poor.
  • Guidelines are statements or pathways describing optimal contemporary clinical practice that are based on evidence and collective expert opinion, and generalisable to a group of patients. These are drawn up to assist clinicians in formulating treatment plans for an individual patient.
  • Advice on guideline writing can be found on the Guideline writing page.
  • Standards and guidelines together are tools linked to audit and research, and are used in the critical analysis of past practice and the setting of targets for the future.
