Clinical practice guidelines are an important outgrowth of the concept of evidence-based medicine. A number of professional organizations have developed clinical practice guidelines that directly affect the practice of diagnostic microbiology and immunology. The goal of these guidelines is the standardization of selected aspects of medical care to ensure both high quality and cost-effectiveness.
