Clinical Practice Guidelines
Setting a new standard of care through evidence-based clinical recommendations.
Over the past decade, clinical guidelines have increasingly become a familiar part of clinical practice. Clinical decisions, rules of operation at hospitals and clinics, and health spending by governments and insurers are all influenced by guidelines.
Our goal at the Hanger Institute is to provide clinicians with evidence-based recommendations, so they can deliver the best possible orthotic and prosthetic care.
The overall process and guiding principles we employ for Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) are modeled after the established American College of Physicians (ACP) CPG program structure. Our CPG statements follow a multistep development process and are based upon the best available evidence related to a specific pathology or episode of care.
