Objective To evaluate the evidence-based guidelines for the health education of solid organ transplantation at home and abroad, and analyze the characteristics of each guideline, so as to provide references for the education of transplantation in China.
Methods We conducted a systematic retrieval of the relevant guidelines on health education of solid organ transplantation published or updated since January 2011 until January 2021, in authoritative domestic and foreign guide websites, the website of the professional society of transplantation and Chinese and English databases. We used AGREE II to evaluate the chosen guidelines.
Results A total of 8 relevant evidence-based guidelines at home and abroad were retrieved. The average standardized scores of quality evaluation for the 6 areas were 87.62% for scope and purpose, 75.46% for participants, 66.54% for rigor, 90.16% for clarity, 48.18% for application, and 74.13% for independence. For overall quality, 2 was Grade A and 6 were Grade B.
Conclusion Guidelines for different types of solid organ transplantation were at different levels, the quality of guidelines needed to be improved, and contents needed to be refined. In the future, we can learn from high-quality guidelines and develop local guidelines in China to guide the health education of organ transplantation.
