Document Types:

  • Practice Guideline: These documents make actionable practice recommendations based on systematic reviews of evidence.
  • Protocol: A protocol is an outline, or roadmap, for developing the systematic review and clinical practice guideline. A protocol does not have conclusion or recommendation statements. These will be developed after the authors find and analyze the studies, or evidence. This evidence will then be included in the final systematic review and guideline.
