Clinical Practice Guidelines – SA Health

Clinical Practice Guidelines assist health care providers in the appropriate management of their patients.

Clinical practice guidelines are evidence-based statements that include recommendations intended to optimise patient care and assist health care practitioners to make decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances. Clinical practice guidelines should assist clinicians and patients in shared decision making.

(This definition is based on the definition developed by the Institute of Medicine in 2011 and used by the National Guideline Clearinghouse from June 2014 onwards).
