Clinical practice guidelines are recommendations for clinicians about the care of patients with specific conditions.
The statewide clinical guidelines are created by adapting pre-existing Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) guidelines adapted to be suitable for a range of environments.
In 2014 the VPCN conducted an evaluation of the statewide CPG project. Currently the VPCN’s Evidence Based Care subcommittee has oversight of the statewide CPG project and has a focus on delivering the report’s recommendations.
While the RCH has published hundreds of CPGs currently not all of them are statewide. As part of an ongoing project, the VPCN funds the RCH to adapt and review a number of guidelines every year. All the statewide CPGs are detailed and linked to below as well as directly available on RCH’s website. On RCH's website they are identified via the following statement:This guideline has been adapted for statewide use with the support of the Victorian Paediatric Clinical Network.
