Clinical Guidelines

Clinical guidelines are systematically developed statements to assist practitioner and patient decisions about appropriate nutrition care for specific clinical circumstances. (Institute of Medicine) Clinical Guidelines define the role of specific diagnostic and treatment modalities in the diagnosis and management of patients. Clinical Guidelines contain recommendations that are based on evidence from a rigorous systematic review and evaluation of the published medical literature. These guidelines may include categories outlined by the National Guideline ClearinghouseTM such as screening, evaluation, assessment of therapeutic effectiveness, management, rehabilitation, risk assessment, technology assessment, or treatment relating either to a specific disease or condition or to a therapy.
