In the last decades there has been a significant increase in the use of clinical pathways in developed countries. A clinical pathway is an instrument defining the optimal sequence of clinical interventions, timeframes and expected outcomes for selected homogeneous groups of patients. It can be viewed as an evidence-based standardized treatment process aiming at disseminating among the healthcare professionals the adoption of best-practice clinical standards to improve quality and equity of care while reducing fragmentation, and ultimately costs.
