About national clinical guidelines

The Danish Health Authority is currently preparing 47 national clinical guidelines, which will contribute to ensuring uniform treatment services of a high professional quality across Denmark.

The national clinical guidelines are systematically prepared, scientific recommendations that may be used to support decisions made by healthcare professionals. The guidelines deal with selected aspects of diagnostics, treatment, care and rehabilitation for specific patient groups, among which there is a special need for uncovering evidence.

The guidelines are based on scientific evidence and best practice, and the purpose is to support uniform efforts across municipalities, regions and the practice sector – regardless of where the patient lives.

The Danish Finance Act has appropriated a total amount of DKK 80 million for the preparation of the guidelines. The Danish Health Authority carries out this task in collaboration with the country's foremost experts in specific areas. The guidelines are published continuously on our website, and we expect the last guidelines to be ready in mid-2016.
