Treatment Practice Guidelines

Definition from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network:

"Clinical practice guidelines are decision tools that are created by doctors to explain a disease and determine the best way to treat a patient, depending on their diagnosis, disease stage, and other factors, such as age. They help doctors make decisions, by explaining the pros and cons of each option."
