Examples and tips for choosing the most appropriate CPG

Examples and tips for choosing the most appropriate CPG

Prof. Mary Ferrill gives an example to clarify how to choose an appropriate CPG.

We are given a topic on the treatments of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, and we are asked to choose the most appropriate CPG. Remember to choose one that can be applied in general!

Besides, there are several tips for locating CPGs, such as checking with the national organization’s website to verify that the most recent CPG has been located. Once the correct CPG has been located, remember to save it. Create your own personal library of CPGs.

Ultimately, she gives screenshots of various resources that we can use, including DynaMed, OVID Medline database, Pharmacist’s letter, and NLM Pubmed.

Have you used these resources before? Which one do you prefer? Please share your opinion below.
