“This paper provides an excellent look at the continuing refinement of our processes for evaluating published evidence and then incorporating that evidence into clinical guidelines,” said Alex Valadka, Deputy Editor of Journal of Neurotrauma. “It’s also important to note that recommendations based on the strongest evidence withstand the test of time to a greater extent than recommendations based on lower-quality studies.
