What We Do › Evidence-based Practice › Products
From 2000-2004, AIHA spearheaded a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) Pilot Initiative to support collaboration among partners—mainly those involved in the provision of primary care services.
Partners involved in AIHA’s primary healthcare program and their institutions shared similar concerns and they worked together to facilitate changes in clinical practice by developing and implementing guidelines, standardizing recommendations, and reducing duplication of effort. These efforts were guided by a steering committee and reinforced by a series of skills-building workshops. Common public health threats such as asthma, diabetes, and hypertension were addressed through this initiative.
As a result of the CPG Initiative, the following protocols were developed:
