Clinical practice guidelines are a valuable resource for doctors and health professionals working in the field of cancer control.
Drawing on the best available evidence, they provide scientifically-valid recommendations for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Condensed versions of most guidelines are available for use in general practice, written with patients and non-clinical readers in mind.
