|A Grade 2 recommendation is a weak recommendation. It means "this is our suggestion, but you may want to think about it." It is unlikely that you should follow the suggested approach in all your patients, and you might reasonably choose an alternative approach. For Grade 2 recommendations, benefits and risks may be finely balanced, or the benefits and risks may be uncertain. In deciding whether to follow a Grade 2 recommendation in an individual patient, you may want to think about your patient's values and preferences or about your patient's risk aversion.
