5.16. Use of Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs)
Clinical practice guidelines (CPG), as developed by the Consortium for Spinal Cord Medicine (CSCM) and other appropriate bodies, need to be used in the care of patients to the extent supported by current medical evidence and state-of-the-art practice. The Chief, SCI Service, is responsible for incorporating CPGs into the appropriate medical care settings. These CPGs can be found on the SCI intranet site at http://vaww.sci.va.gov/ under the training link.
