South African Guidelines Excellence (SAGE): Adopt, adapt, or contextualise?

J M Dizon, K Grimmer, Q Louw, T Kredo, T Young, S Machingaidze

Abstract


Clinical practice guideline (CPG) activities must be planned carefully for efficient use of available resources and evidence-based implementation. De novo development of CPGs may sometimes ‘recreate the wheel’ and delay implementation. Three innovative alternatives to de novo CPG development (adopt, contextualise or adapt) are outlined, which have greater potential than de novo development to best use the limited available resources, personnel and time in settings such as South Africa.
