The Quality Foundation of the Dutch Federation of Medical Specialists supported a comprehensive multidisciplinary guideline. Their goals were “to provide a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of the risk factors, prevention, diagnosis, imaging, treatment and prognosis for Achilles tendinopathy. To make clinical recommendations for healthcare practitioners and patients.” The authors address each aspect by posing key questions, describing the problem, and offering recommendations.
