Gliederung

Text

Background: The Centre for Clinical Practice Guidelines of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Palacky University is concerned with issues of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) as viewed from different perspectives. To disseminate knowledge on CPGs we have developed a comprehensive educational programme (CEP) for undergraduate medical students called The GIN Kindergarten in 2008.

Context: We have developed a CEP focused on various aspects of CPGs and many workshops and lectures have been held since 2008. As a part of the CEP a series of lectures for final year medical students were listed in the standard curriculum as a compulsory subject in 2009/2010. 510 final year medical students have attended the lectures since 2009 in total.

Description of best practice: The lectures covered the basic principles of systematic development, adaptation, evaluation and implementation of CPGs as well as search strategies for best evidence, applied legal and ethical aspects. The European Resuscitation Council 2010 cardio-pulmonary resuscitation guidelines have been implementing and used to illustrate basic methodological principles. The part of the lecture is a training of CPR using a mannequin and two case scenarios.

Lessons for guideline developers, adaptors, implementers, and/or users: The best implementation strategy of CPGs is to incorporate them into medical curricula, particularly into undergraduate medical curricula. The use of the latest up-date of ERC CPR guidelines is very efficient way to show methodological principles and different aspects of CPGs in a clinical context.
