Knowledge, attitude, barriers and facilitators to developing Clinical Practice Guidelines in Italy: a cross sectional national survey among the registered scientific and technical societies

Authors

Abstract

Background. To explore knowledge, attitude, and barriers of the Italian National Guidelines System (SNLG) for the development of clinical practice guidelines (CPG) among scientific-technical societies (STS) of health care professional.
Methods. A cross-sectional survey was distributed to the STS registered in the Italian Ministry of Health (n = 336). The questionnaire consisted of three sections: Respondent characteristics; Perception, knowledge, attitude, and use of CPGs; Knowledge of the SNLG.
Results. The survey sample was 194 (57.7%) STS: 69% STS members stated they “often consulted CPGs”. Two out of three STS perceived scientific activities as extremely important. Additionally, 20.6% STS had submitted at least one CPG to the SNLG platform after the Gelli-Bianco Law went into effect (median 1 CPG; interquartile range, IQR, 1-4). The most often cited barrier (62.7%) to CPG submission was limited economic resources.
Conclusions. STS members hold a positive attitude towards CPGs despite barriers to CPG development.
