Clinical practice guidelines bring together the best available evidence and make recommendations about how to provide care to patients that fit with this evidence. There are a number of guidelines available to guide pediatric palliative care. However, many of these guidelines are not widely recognized or available, and little is known about how they were developed. In this study we are systematically identifying and assessing the quality of existing practice guidelines for pediatric palliative care. Based on our assessment of quality we will provide recommendations for use or further development of the guidelines.
