Clinical practice guidelines

Resources that promote people-first practices and outcomes

In recent years, developing clinical practice guidelines has undergone significant re-evaluation by national professional organizations, including the American Medical Association and the National Academy of Medicine.

To increase best practices and improve transparency, these organizations have articulated principles that form the foundation for new clinical practice guideline development standards. Accordingly, we have reviewed and adopted the following clinical practice guidelines to meet those standards. Browse through the following clinical practice guidelines to learn more. 

Clinical practice resources


The clinical practice resources listed below contain recommendations based on expert consensus in areas without sufficient literature-based evidence.

Historical clinical practice guidelines

Publications older than five years from their review date are allocated to our archive for informational purposes only. These guidelines do not go through the same review our Scientific Review Committee (SRC) performs on other guidelines and resources. The SRC reserves the right to continue endorsing a guideline or practice resource older than five years if it remains clinically relevant, and an updated publication does not exist.

In order to measure our network’s performance regarding best practices, we have identified three clinical practice guidelines and resources to use while assessing medical records.
