Canadian Headache Society systematic review and recommendations on the treatment of migraine pain in emergency settings
Clinicians frequently use clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to inform their practice. Often these also form standards of care. It is important to critically appraise CPGs as you would other articles in the literature. One helpful, user-friendly tool is the AGREE-II instrument. Using this tool takes you through the appropriate steps of CPG development and dissemination and allows you to evaluate for important sources of bias such as appropriate stakeholder involvement and external review.
