Strength and Quality of Recommendations

What does this mean? Each recommendation is rated by a 'strength of recommendation' and a 'quality of evidence' grading. Because PSC is complex and still poorly understood in some ways, some of the evidence used is 'low quality', and that's often because the evidence is simply not available. When this is the case, the recommendation is based on the majority consensus of expert opinion.

Huge thanks to Professor Douglas Thorburn for reviewing PSC Support's interpretation of each recommendation. 6 November 2019
