The Institute of Medicine (2010) defines a “Clinical Practice Guideline” (CPG) as a “systematically developed statement to assist practitioner and patient decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances.” Specifically, evidence-based CPGs are a series of recommendations on clinical care, supported by the best available evidence in the clinical literature. CPGs are developed by panels or groups of experienced or expert individuals who synthesize evidence and the strength of the evidence toward the development of recommendations for clinical practice. According to the National Guideline Clearinghouse, sponsored by the Agency on Healthcare Research and Quality, guidelines are intended to identify generally recommended interventions to be considered by a knowledgeable health care provider.
It is believed that the application of the techniques of evidence-based medicine to CPG development can greatly reduce the role of opinion and minimize bias, thus leading to improved guidelines for clinical practice. Evidence-based CPGs are thus superior to nonevidence-based CPGs and can improve health care and patient outcomes.
This assignment will equip you as a professional nurse with the competencies to rapidly appraise CPGs for use in patient care. After completing this assignment, you will be able to:
Identify an evidence-based CPG related to a clinical problem of interest.
Critically appraise the selected evidence-based CPG based on the criteria provided.
Discuss the clinical relevance of the evidence on which the selected CPG is based.
Follow the instructions to complete the assignment. Refer to the Course Schedule for the due date.
Search for and correctly identify one set of evidence-based CPGs related to a clinical problem of interest.
Conduct a review of your CPG by following the steps below:
Select one (1) of the appraisal checklists tools:
Rapid Critical Appraisal Checklist for Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines [DOCX]
The AGREE Document
Critically appraise your selected CPG, addressing all appraisal criteria or questions.
Document your review of your CPG directly on the critical appraisal checklist or in a separate document.
Cite the APA-formatted reference of the CPGs you selected.
