Abstract

Background: Febrile neutropenia is a common and serious chemotherapy side effect, is associated with increased mortality, morbidity, and treatment expenditures. Several CPGs (Clinical practice guidelines) have been released for managing chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia. The aim of this study is Appraisal of the clinical practice Guidelines quality in the management of chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia. Methods: A review study with a systematic search of the present CPGs for the management of chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia. After screening the CPGs based on eligibility criteria, three CPGs were selected and 5 independent reviewers appraised them for methodological quality by using the AGREE II Instrument. Results: Three CPGs were included; all of them were evidence-based guidelines. The clarity of presentation domain scored the highest and the applicability domain has the lowest score among all domains of AGREE instrument and the rest of domains scored as descending respectively; Scope and purpose, stakeholder involvement, editorial independence, rigor of development. In general, the intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) scores of all domains were very good according to the Landis and Koch's scale, except the Applicability domain scored as substantial. Conclusions: This study showed the quality of appraised CPGs. Three domains of these CPGs based on the AGREE instrument scored less than other domains and were in relatively unfavorable status: applicability, rigor of development, editorial independence. Given the importance of these domains in guideline implementation, it is necessary to take actions for reducing these defects.
