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.

Guidelines are updated periodically in keeping with emerging evidence. Each guideline contains an important disclaimer and users must proceed at their own risk accordingly: This guideline is designed for general use with most patients; each clinician should use his or her own independent judgment to meet the needs of each individual patient. This guideline is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
