Abstract

In Scotland a national audit project has been undertaken to devise evidence-based guidelines for the clinical management of patients with tuberous sclerosis (TS), a dominantly inherited multisystem disorder. In order to facilitate the audit and use of these guidelines a 'Care Pathway' was devised to form the patient records. We describe the process of guideline development for TS and our TS Care Pathway.
