Croatia follows other European countries, such as Germany, Italy, Portugal, Romania, and Spain in developing updated EC guidelines in 2015. Medical societies are playing an important role in increasing the knowledge of health providers, pharmacists, patients, and the general public by summarizing the most up-to-date scientific information and by offering recommendations.
