Clinical Pathways

At University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, a clinical practice guideline (CPG) is a systematically developed statement to assist practitioners in making patient care decisions about managing and treating a particular problem or clinical condition. Clinical practice guidelines help guide decisions to improve diagnostic accuracy and therapeutic effectiveness based on the best evidence available and expert opinion. Clinical practice guidelines (including summaries and pathways) do not set the standard of care and should not be the course of care. Each physician/practitioner must use their independent judgment in managing any specific patient and is responsible, in consultation with the patient or the patient’s family, to make the ultimate judgment regarding care.

If you have questions about the Evidence-Based Practice Program at Rainbow or the development of our CPGs please contact us at RainbowEBPprogram@uhhospitals.org
