Incorporating the newest research into clinical guidelines is challenging. It takes times constructing a guideline, and as a consequence, some guidelines may already be outdated before they reach the patient.
This is were the BMJ rapid recommendations come into play. These rapid recommendations seek to accelerate the process, by which the newest evidence is incorporated into single recommendations, thus providing clinicians with the newest knowledge on how to treat patients in the safest and most effective way.
Have a look at the video below created by the BMJ, which provides a nice and simple explanation on how these recommendations are made.
