Synopsis

This handbook provides information to assist developers of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) in summarising the evidence of the effects of socioeconomic position (SEP) and other markers (or descriptors) of disadvantage, on health outcomes and health care delivery. This process informs the development of CPGs by suggesting ways in which guideline developers can identify and retrieve evidence and incorporate it into guidelines for clinical practice.
