Abstract

The clinical pathway represents a problem-oriented approach to patient care, with primary goals being standardization and optimization of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Clinical practice guidelines are the framework on which the clinical pathway is formulated. Throughout this review, the terms pathways and guidelines will be used somewhat interchangeably to describe protocols of patient treatment tailored for specific clinical problems. The purpose of this report is to assess the current status of clinical practice guidelines for the care of patients with head and neck cancer. Included in this analysis is a summary of factors relevant to the development of practice guidelines and a discussion of potential consequences that may result from proposal of such guidelines.
