The James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence is dedicated to sharing its expertise and knowledge. The pediatric Evidence-Based Care Recommendations developed at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are developed by experts, patients and families to help pediatricians provide the best possible care to patients.
Our Evidence-Based Care Recommendations are based on the best available evidence and expert opinion. These care recommendations are produced as Best Evidence Statements (BESt) and Care Guidelines. The scope of a BESt is smaller than a clinical practice guideline. A BESt contains clinical recommendations based on best evidence on a limited topic or single clinical question. The BESt also depends more on synthesized evidence, such as published guidelines and other systematic reviews when available, than on primary research.
Choose one of the buttons below to access the available care recommendations: browsing by topic (common terms, clinician terms), by specialty or discipline or by type of guidance (domains of intervention / therapy, diagnosis / assessment, continuing education, nursing care).
