VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guidelines: Putting Them to Work at Your Facility

The DoD is committed to designing, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to improve and standardize the quality of care delivered to its beneficiaries. For the last 20 years, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and DoD have worked collaboratively to develop CPGs to meet the requirements of the military and veterans' health care systems. To date, 22 guidelines have been completed on topics such as low-back pain, opioid therapy for chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

During this webinar, attendees will hear how the CPGs are developed and learn about a systematic process for successfully implementing CPGs at their facilities. Additionally, the CPG champion at one military treatment facility will describe the facility's experience in adopting the CPG for low-back pain.
