Ben-Eltriki M, Cassels A, Erviti J, Wright JM. Why we need a single independent international hypertension clinical practice guideline. Hypertens Res (2021). DOI: 10.1038/s41440-021-00666-6

Hypertension guidelines should be evidence-based and follow the principles of evidence-based medicine independent of where they are developed. We document a surprisingly different use of SRs and a different approach to reducing conflicts of interest in the Canadian and Malaysian hypertension guidelines. We realize that this topic will be controversial, but as such, it will be engaging and interesting for the scientific community. We use this example to make a strong appeal for a single independent international hypertension guideline for use worldwide.
