Sources of Clinical Evidence and Practice Guidelines

You can limit your search results in library databases just to practice guidelines as a type of publication or search guidelines-specific or clinical evidence sources.

Additionally, remember that clinical practice guidelines are often created by government agencies or health-care organizations and visiting the websites of organizations relevant to your topic can help you find guidelines. Be sure to carefully assess them to verify if their recommendations are based on valid and systematic review of the evidence.
