Guidelines are systematically developed statements designed to help practitioners and patients make decisions about appropriate health care for specific circumstances (Jackson & Feder, 1998). ‘Help’ is an important word. Guidelines/guides, in most instances, may suggest a road to take in order to travel from A to B, and make explicit why those suggestions have been made. Provision of this information respects the traveller's ability to assimilate the information, and make decisions on applicability. The traveller is then not constrained by information but helped by it. At the end of the day, for clear reasons, a different road may be chosen.
