Evidence Based Practice (EBP) at Children's Mercy partners with clinicians and families to standardize our approach to patient care through:

  • Clinical Practice Guidelines are intended to standardize patient care. Our guidelines are informed by the systematic review of current pediatric health care literature, and includes risk and benefit assessment of alternative care options.

  • Care Process Models are also intended to standardize care however they are developed by consensus agreement from subject matter experts when explicit literature is not available or is weak.
