Clinical Practice Guidelines

Clinical Practice Guidelines

  • Clinical Practice Guidelines
  • Clinical Practice Guidelines adopted by ATRIO are developed by national medical associations and other recognized health care organizations. Clinical Practice Guidelines adopted by ATRIO are approved by the appropriate Committees and reviewed annually or as needed when national guidelines change.
  • Clinical Practice Guidelines support providers in treating chronic disease, providing preventive care, and maintaining office operations.
  • Clinical Practice Guidelines are not intended to define a standard of care and should not be construed as one. Neither should they be interpreted as prescribing an exclusive course of management.
  • The guidelines are based on clinical evidence, professional standards, or expert consensus opinion. Clinical Practice Guidelines are aids to facilitate the delivery of evidence-based quality care. They are not intended to be a substitute for professional judgement or imply a guarantee of coverage.
  • Variations in practice will inevitably and appropriately occur when clinicians consider the needs of individual patients, available resources, and limitations unique to an institution or type of practice. Every healthcare professional making use of these guidelines is responsible for evaluating the appropriateness of applying them in the setting of any clinical situation.
  • Regardless of the care setting, all patients should have access to individualized evidence-based care.
