Find clinical guidelines when searching CKN

You are here

When running a search on CKN you will now be offered links to relevant clinical guidelines.

Clinical guidelines are sets of non-mandatory rules, principles or recommendations for procedures or practices in a particular field. Guidelines provide evidence-based information to help health professionals achieve best practice, assist in the clinical decision making process, and include recommendations to help optimise patient care. They are developed by panels of multidisciplinary experts, informed by a systematic review of evidence, and an assessment of the benefits and harms of alternative care options.

Clinical guidelines have now been integrated into search results, so for example, if you search for “kidney disease” the search results include the Caring for Australasians with Renal Impairment (CARI), National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (NKF KDOQI), and RHD Australia clinical guidelines. You can also navigate directly to the list of Clinical Guidelines through the CKN home page menu, under the “Clinical Guidelines” link.
