From the Experts

You may have come across MBC clinical practice guidelines. Experts develop clinical practice guidelines by reviewing all available evidence from research and clinical trials and considering balance between benefits and harms, equity, feasibility, and acceptability. Doctors and patients then use these guidelines to select treatments.

Guidelines explain how strong the recommendation is, help establish the standard of care, and are updated as new information from clinical trials emerges.
