    Guideline Development Process

    There are two groups at the RCH involved in the development of Guidelines. The Clinical Practice Guideline group generally produces guidelines for the emergency and/or acute management of paediatric patients. The Clinical Effectiveness Committee was established by Nursing Services to support the development and revision of evidence based guidelines supporting nursing practice across the RCH campus. Whilst both groups work collaboratively each group has a different development process. The steps for guideline development for each group are outlined as per the following links:

    Through collaboration with the Victorian Paediatric Clinical Network the RCH has adapted a number of its more commonly accessed clinical practice guidelines to make them suitable for use outside of major tertiary health care settings. The process for review and adaptation has been ratified by the Victorian Paediatric Clinical Network.
