The CPM Resource Center launches Web-based clinical practice guidelines

GRAND RAPIDS, MI April 5, 2010 The Clinical Practice Model Resource Center (CPMRC), an Elsevier company and leader in developing clinical practice guidelines for healthcare, today launched its first Web-based version of Point of Care Guidelines . The online edition of its award-winning guidelines supports new and emerging meaningful use requirements for care coordination and interdisciplinary collaboration with a model that helps improve practice at the point of care and thus facilitate sustainable healthcare transformation.

Offering an evidence-based approach to patient care covering medical, surgical and human response diagnoses, the online guidelines offer users new and enhanced features including varied search mechanisms; direct, internal links; relevant external resource site links; evidence leveling and recommendation grading and customization options to add hospital specific policies, announcements and branding on the homepage. Nurses and interdisciplinary professionals will have quick access to more than 200 CPMRC clinical practice guidelines to ensure that they will have all the information needed to build their workflow around best practices.

"The point-and-click knowledge that Point of Care Guidelines provides is necessary for the way many healthcare organizations are supporting evidence-based decision-making and care planning at the point of care in today's tech-based world," said Donna Mayo, MSN, RN, CPMRC's Director of Product Development. "Any information from the Point of Care Guidelines is accessible from any remote log-in location. Quick, convenient search tools allow users to find relevant information instantly. This translates into easily adaptable evidence and a high standard of quality patient care."

The Clinical Practice Model Resource Center embraces both educational and practice settings. The model's core beliefs are related to safe, individualized healthcare; healthy work culture; continuous learning; evidence-based action; partnership; individual accountability; shared mission, vision and values; and healthy relationships. Information is updated in real-time and developed by expert interdisciplinary clinicians through the nearly 300 member CPMRC International Consortium, which maintains a continuous feedback loop designed to ensure credible, relevant information and CPMRC's development methodology.

"The Institute of Medicine, regulatory principles and patient safety initiatives have defined evidence-based decision making and practice environments as a clear priority," said Michelle Troseth, MSN, RN, DPNAP, CPMRC's Executive Vice President and Chief Professional Practice Officer. "Point of Care Guidelines answers that call by decreasing variances in outcomes, improving patient care, aligning with patient safety initiatives and quality standards, and enhancing interdisciplinary care coordination."

Clinical guidelines are only as strong as the process through which they are created. CPMRC's process combines a rigorous, scientifically based development methodology with a broad-based consensual validation involving literally thousands of practitioners. This unique methodology ensures that CPMRC's guidelines are the most advanced, comprehensive and intensely scrutinized decision-support tools in the world.
