Clinical Practice Guidelines

I’m studying for my Writing class and need an explanation.

Clinical practice guidelines use available evidence to develop recommendations that guide practice to improve patient care.

Select a clinical practice guideline, based on your area of interest, from one of the web sites below or another site. Describe the following information from the guideline you selected.

  • Identify the name of the clinical guideline and date developed
  • Identify the population
  • Identify 3 recommendations found in the guideline
  • Identify the grade or level of recommendation for the three recomendations identified and describe what the assigned grade or level means.
  • How can you use the information from the guideline in your practice?
