Background: Standardized order sets are thought to improve patient outcomes in multiple ways. They reduce costs without reducing quality of care, and improve efficiency. In both surgical and medical conditions patients benefit from order sets in various disease states. In Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), the use of standardized order sets may be beneficial as there are a defined set of disease-specific diagnostic tests and treatments to be implemented. Here, the primary aim was to search for, and evaluate standardized order sets for GBS, and to provide a basis for development of future pathways. Methods: We used the Cochrane, TRIP, and MEDLINE/PUBMED databases, searching between January 1966 and April 2014. Search terms included: “Guillain-Barre Syndrome” and its synonyms, “(standardized) order set”, “clinical pathway”, “neurology” and “admission bundle.” Results: Despite anecdotal evidence of order sets, no formal data has been published showing benefit after implementation of these sets in GBS or any neurological condition. Conclusions: Although evidence exists for use of standardized order sets in surgical and medical settings, no published data exist in neurology. Given GBS has a defined set of disease-specific and state-specific treatment options, a standardized order set used on admission for GBS patients may prove to be beneficial.
