The recommendations used in this dataset are based on evidence obtained from the relevant literature on sarcoma diagnosis and management, grading and other predictive factors, and on the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines, the World Health Organisation (WHO) classification of 2013, the protocol of the College of American Pathologists and the 8th edition of the staging manual of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). Modified SIGN guidance has been used to grade the evidence (see Appendix G). Consensus of evidence in the datasets was achieved by expert review during the consultation process. Gaps in evidence were identified by members via feedback received from consultation.
