National Clinical Guidelines
National Clinical Guidelines are systematically developed statements, based on a thorough evaluation of the evidence, to assist practitioner and service users’ decisions about appropriate healthcare for specific clinical circumstances across the entire clinical system. The aim of National Clinical Guidelines is to provide guidance and standards for improving the quality, safety and cost effectiveness of healthcare in Ireland. Before reading and using these guidelines, you should read this disclaimer and our guidance on intellectual property. Resources on how to develop a National Clinical Guideline are here.
