Review the process and find resources to assist guidelines leaders, panelists, and public members in the process.
SCCM clinical practice guidelines are developed using a rigorous process that includes evidence-based medicine methodology. The current guidelines development process is described in SCCM’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Manual for Evidence-Based Guidelines and Practice Parameter Statements. Because patients rely on healthcare professionals and institutions for their healthcare, SCCM has developed policies and processes to support the publication and dissemination of the highest-quality guidelines.
SCCM offers resources for guidelines leaders, panelists, and public members to assist in the guidelines development process.

The SOP Manual highlights steps and processes for the development, publication, and dissemination of evidence-based guidelines and clinical practice parameters developed by SCCM volunteers and staff. The purpose of publishing guidelines is to optimize patient care. The manual delineates important aspects of processes in accordance with standards set by the SCCM Council with implementation via the ACCM BOR.
Implementation of guidelines at the bedside often requires the deployment of tools to assist clinicians in applying guidelines to patient care. This short six-minute recorded webcast describes what can be included in toolkits for SCCM guidelines.
