Provincial Clinical Guidance Available Online

Healthcare providers and patients can find the latest Alberta Health Services (AHS) clinical guidance and standards via a Clinical Knowledge Viewer on Insite. Clinical guidance is about how to provide the best possible care in AHS settings, drawing upon the work of Strategic Clinical Networks, Clinical Knowledge & Content Management (CKCM) and other sources. The Viewer includes summaries of new and updated guidelines, standards, pathways and other decision supports.

The CKCM team helps gather evidence-informed clinical guidance so it can be rendered for inclusion in the Connect Care clinical information system (CIS). By embedding information about what works in the CIS, AHS teams can put knowledge to work when they need it most. The same guidance can inform current  workflows while transitioning to Connect Care.

Over the past three months alone, the CKCM team has engaged with 1,235 clinicians, 480 physicians and 117 clinical working groups to develop provincial clinical guidance optimized for AHS settings. CKCM collaborates with clinical operations, Strategic Clinical Networks, provincial clinical services and content experts across Alberta so that healthcare professionals help one another to improve care.
