Abstract: No information is currently available on whether the available clinical practice guidelines on the management of atopic dermatitis are known or being applied in Spain. The aim of this study was to improve the care of patients with atopic dermatitis by developing a set of quality indicators based on existing clinical practice guidelines. Relevant clinical practice guidelines identified through a literature search were submitted to a panel of 11 specialists, who selected the highest quality guidelines using the AGREE (Appraisal of Guidelines for Research & Evaluation) II instrument. The panel then defined a subset of the recommendations supported by a high level of evidence and proposed a health care quality indicator for each one together with a standard for measuring degree of adherence. Consensus was achieved on 21 of the 150 proposed indicators using the modified Delphi method. The aim of implementing the indicators that achieved consensus in this study is to standardize the actions of health professionals providing care for patients with atopic dermatitis and ultimately to improve the quality of the care delivered.
