How the guidelines may be used

It is the county councils (landsting), the regions and the municipalities that make decisions concerning public health and medical care, dental care and social services. Politicians, senior executives and managers as well as the personnel in medical care and social services can use the guidelines as support for different decisions.

In the guidelines, the National Board of Health and Welfare recommends that Health and Medical care and Social Services should invest more resources within certain areas than in others. The particular conditions and interventions that have a high ranking are ones where more resources should be invested whereas fewer or no resources should be invested in the conditions and interventions that have a low ranking.

The guidelines may be used as a support for

  • decisions on resource allocation within and between different groups and operations
  • decisions about operational planning
  • decisions about organisation of the different activities
  • decisions on regional and local medical care programmes
  • individual decisions made by e.g. doctors, case officers within social services or dentists in the consultations with the patients or users
