Our pathways are created to reflect best practice for the conditions and symptoms that are most important for our users. We constantly monitor changes in well-reputed secondary evidence – systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and guidelines. Only articles in English are considered. Inclusion and exclusion criteria are applied to systematic reviews and meta-analyses retrieved from the searches to ensure that only high-quality information is selected. The AGREE instrument is employed to assess the quality of guidelines, and all clinical content is peer reviewed. Pathways are continually updated as the clinical evidence changes.
The clinical content in Map Pathways is created by our team of clinicians, editors, and information specialists, with input from independent clinical experts. Every pathway is peer-reviewed, and some pathways are further accredited by Royal Colleges and professional clinical bodies. Peer-reviewers are asked to consider the evidence base used, the clinical usability and to provide knowledge from their experience of clinical practice to address any gaps in the published evidence.
Yes. Our team of clinical and editorial experts can work with your existing local guidelines to create pathways tailored to your local priorities. We will also train you and give you the tools to create, edit and share your own content.
