Abstract

In 2001, the Journal began publishing a special feature the Evidence-Based Report Card. These articles were designed to systematically identify and review evidence pertaining to wound, ostomy and continence specialty practice and summarize recommendations for clinical practice. Based on feedback from WOCN members and Society leadership, the Journal will relaunch this popular and valuable special feature. This article describes methods used to generate Evidence-Based Report Cards, a taxonomy of levels of evidence, and criteria for ranking the strength of recommendations for treatment.
