    Abstract

    The authors discuss the important and often neglected role of psychosocial factors in guideline development. Such factors can influence the process by which guideline development groups interact, make decisions and achieve consensus, which may have important implications for the validity and reliability of the recommendations they produce. Particular attention is paid to the role of social influence within multidisciplinary groups and the importance of good chairmanship. Recommendations for participants, chairmen and guideline development bodies are given.
