    Thanks Fanny for relating your experience and thoughts. One can only hope that generic type clinical practice guidelines on conditions and diseases are able to treat each individual with true patient-centred cared unique to each individual rather than what appears to be the case nowadays where such clinical practice guidelines, which governments love to make themselves look better with a “best practice” phoney label and yet being able to deny certain drugs and procedures and diagnostics with the rationale “not enough evidence” despite enough trials to warrant covering the costs for such procedures etc. IMHO evidence-based medicine, in practice, has a long way to go to fully achieve true best practice patient-centred care. The end of generic clinical practice guidelines will be an excellent start in recognizing the unique health situation of every person with their own specific needs and conditions in our health care system.
