Abstract: Objectives To evaluate the reporting status of conflict of interest and economic evidence in Chinese clinical practice guidelines published in 2017 and to provide implications for the guideline development in China.Methods CNKI, Wan Fang Data and Google Scholar were electronically searched to collect clinical practice guidelines published in 2017 from January 1 st to December 31 st, 2017. Two authors independently screened literature, extracted information of interest, such as conflict of interest disclosure and economic evidences, then, the analysis was performed by using the Microsoft Excel 20013 software. Results A total of 53 guidelines were included; in which, 14(26.42%) disclosed conflict of interest, 10(18.87%) stated sources of funding, and 6(11.32%) mentioned economics evidence. Conclusion In China, inadequate attention is addressed to the conflict of interest disclosure and economics evidence during the development of clinical practice guidelines. We propose the inclusion of conflict of interest and economics evidence disclosure in clinical practice guidelines, which will improve their objectivity, independence, and transparency.
