The use of clinical practice guidelines for the management of multiple sclerosis in Australia
Type of Study/Intervention
Qualitative interview study
Form of MS
Clinical practice guidelines are often developed to improve care based on the latest evidence. However, there is no official obligation to adhere to guideline recommendations in Australia and it remains unclear whether clinicians use guidelines for MS management. We aim to explore the extent to which MS clinicians providing treatment to people with MS are aware of, value and use guidelines; and further assess the facilitators and barriers to guideline use. MS clinicians (nurses and neurologists) will be invited for a 30-minute phone or online interview.
