Evidence Based Guidelines, Best Practices and Health Promotion

Best Practices are preferred strategies and initiatives aimed at providing the optimal knowledge and skills necessary to address the growing needs of our health care system. This section provides educational resources on how to identify various health challenges, and help educate patients and providers in the best treatment methods.

Evidence Based Guidelines

The CareOregon Quality Committee (QC) approves guidelines that are evidence based and reviewed at least biennially by a nationally recognized body of experts on the topic. Once approved, these are placed on the web site. Paper copies are also available upon request.
For more information on the guideline selection and approval process, see Clinical Guidelines Policy & Procedure.
