Standard of care

While I agree with the assertion that clinical trials should be offered to all children with cancer, not all trials compare to standard of care and, being a trial, not all trials should be considered representative of standard of care. I believe statement 2 in Consensus Based Recommendations should be modified to decrease the emphasis on trials equating to standard of care. Likewise peer-reviewed publications of RCTs are more likely representative of standard of care and should be mentioned.
