Guidance and Recommendation Format

Because this topic lacks the level of evidence required for a more formal guideline using the GRADE system, no grading of the evidence level is provided for individual recommendations. Each guidance statement is based on synthesis of limited evidence, theoretical rationale, practical considerations, a survey of SHEA membership and the SHEA Research Network, author opinion, and consideration of potential harm where applicable. An accompanying rationale is listed alongside each recommendation.
