E-drug: Internet-based guideline depository unveiled (cont)
---------------------------------------------
Thank you for the news - but I cannot help commenting on your email. Why
would the establishment of an internet site lead to greater use of clinical
practice guidelines?
It is useful to academics (and I am about to check it)
- me for instance when I am trying to check "evidence-base" but that is
only one input to clinical practice.

That is not how the medical profession works
- mostly doctors rely, if they perceive a need for guidance, on
specific expertise of clinical specialists applied to individual patients'
problems.
