For a more extensive list of sources of Guidelines, go to this link:  https://library.chamberlain.edu/az.php?s=118130

 

On the NR-505 course guide at http://library.chamberlain.edu/nr505, there is a box called Clinical Practice Guidelines (second down in left column) that provides these sources of clinical practice guidelines to help answer this assignment:

CURRENT Practice Guidelines in Primary Care 2018

 

NOTE: The CU library does not provide access to the AORN site or their guidelines. If students wish to use AORN guidelines, the students must purchase those individually.

 

Also - On how to provide a citation for guidelines, a clinical practice guideline is cited as a page or document from a website. The main difference is that the author is an organization not an individual. You'll need to add the indent, but this is the format for AHRQ guidelines:

 

EXAMPLE:

Agency for Research Health and Quality. (2005). Management of menopause-related symptoms. Retrieved April 15, 2010, from http://www.ahrq.gov/clinic/tp/menopstp.htm
