Abstract

This article provides an overview of an approach to incorporating a range of evidence, including qualitative research findings, that the authors piloted when developing a clinical guideline on epilepsies in children and young people. We describe methods used for incorporating literature types not usually included in Scottish Intercollegiate Guidlines Network (SIGN) guidelines, including critical appraisal, and establishing dependability and credibility of qualitative findings. We highlight limitations encountered and make suggestions for future work.
