Clinical Standards

A Clinical Standard is a document that describes the care of patients, for a specific clinical condition or defined clinical pathway, by PHECC practitioners and/or responders in more detail than can be accommodated on a PHECC Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG).

Clinical Standards are developed by the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) and approved by Council. MAC use current evidence, their clinical expertise and consideration of issues that affect the delivery of care, when developing clinical standards.

Clinical Standards will also inform Recognised Institutes (RIs) of details in relation to the clinical condition being taught within the RI.
