• Simplicity– The number of health problems is limited and for each health problem a few key diagnostic criteria are listed. Drug and dosage information is clear and concise.
• Credibility– Guidelines developed by the most respected clinicians in the country and revisions based on actual experience.
• Use of the same standard for all levels of health care– Doctors and other healthcare providers use the same standard treatment as it is a referral criterion which differs, and the first-choice treatment for a patient depends on the patient’s diagnosis and condition – not on the prescriber.
• Provision of standards to drug supply– Most importantly, drug supply should be matched to the recommended treatments and drugs on the list of essential drugs.
• Regular updating- As bacterial resistance patterns change or other factors alter therapeutic preferences, the standards are revised to reflect current recommendations and concise.
