BC Guidelines


BC Guidelines are clinical practice guidelines and protocols that provide recommendations to B.C. practitioners on delivering high quality, appropriate care to patients with specific clinical conditions or diseases. These “Made in BC” clinical practice guideline are developed by the Guidelines and Protocol Advisory Committee (GPAC), an advisory committee to the Medical Services Commission. The primary audience for BC Guidelines are BC physicians, nurse practitioners, and medical students. Though other audiences such as health educators, health authorities, allied health organizations, pharmacists, and nurses may find them resourceful.

There are several ways to find the guidelines you are looking for.
