I used to think - wrongly - that HealthPathways was a NZ thing. Turns out there's a long list of Australian health districts participating, plus three British ones. https://www.healthpathwayscommunity.org/About.aspx So that's one set of guidelines. We all know about the NICE guidelines. And recently we learned that another set of guidelines by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) are going to be updated (see post here: https://www.s4me.info/threads/news-from-new-zealand-and-the-pacific-islands.4230/page-16#post-210499). So in Britain, in some regions, we have NICE and HealthPathways. And in most of NZ and Australia we have RACP and HealthPathways. Do these different guidelines compete or do they complement each other in some way? They all seem to be being updated independently of each other and at different times. Wouldn't that create a risk of them containing contradictory information at times? Which would be confusing for doctors. As an aside, I don't like the word 'opinion' in the HealthPathways description: "Each health jurisdiction tailors the content of HealthPathways to reflect local arrangements and opinion".
