Asset Map of Canadian Clinical Practice Guidelines
The SPOR Evidence Alliance is pleased to release a draft report on the Asset Map of Canadian Clinical Practice Guidelines. The report maps information on over 1,100 open-access clinical practice guidelines that have been developed in Canada either at the local, provincial or national level. Information contained within this report will be used to develop an online, searchable database and will soon be available on the SPOR Evidence Alliance website. Our goal is to demonstrate the strengths and capacity of Canadian developers of clinical practice guidelines, and identify opportunities to advance the science of guideline development, as well as opportunities for future collaborations. The database will be updated on an ongoing basis to provide up-to-date and easy to access information on existing and current guidelines and help reduce redundancies and duplication of efforts in guideline development.
