Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) are graded recommendations on best practice for a specific condition based on the systematic review and evaluation of the quality of the scientific literature.  These documents are defined by a stringent methodology and formal process for development.  Clinical practice guidelines are required to bridge the gap between evidence and recommendation and are comprised of both evidence-based and expert-based information to guide clinical practice decision-making. Although variation can exist, all must meet standard criteria and follow a defined policy and procedure.  The Director of Practice works with the Evidence-based Documents Committee to identify CPG topics, formulate CPG work groups, and oversee the development of a CPG.  When a CPG is close to completion the, the Practice Committee creates and overses a Knowledge Translation (KT) taskforce that works for 1-2 years to create tools, processes and strategies for dissemination, implementation of the CPG.  Current CPG's completed or in process are listed below:

Vestibular Hypofunction

Core Outcome Measures

Locomotor Training

Orthotics and Neuro Prosthetics
