Patient Education

Provide your patients with reliable information about conditions and illnesses.

Children’s Minnesota has created a number of clinical practice guidelines for health professionals that highlight an evidence-based approach to the management of certain conditions in order to reduce unwarranted variation in care.

Guidelines are designed to apply to the bulk of patients with a given condition and should be adapted to individual patients based upon clinical judgment and individual situations. To assist providers with real-time decision making, most of the clinical guidelines at Children’s Minnesota consist of visual treatment algorithms/pathways, evidence-based ordersets, bibliographies, and any applicable rules/alerts embedded within the electronic health record.
