Many hospitals in Norway wish to collaborate and share clinical procedures and guidelines. This website helps health professionals to produce and share evidence-based clinical procedures and guidelines of high-quality. Such documents will support the work of health professionals, contribute to high-quality care and reduce practice variation.
A survey was conducted among all 29 Norwegian Health Trusts in Norway in 2009. The results showed the need to collaborate, and the extensive work concerning clinical procedures was in urgent need of direction, structure and transparency. This website will make it easier for health professionals to work systematically on procedures and guidelines in Norway. It also lists completed clinical procedures and provides information about ongoing ones.
The G-I-N conference 2011 gave us the possibility to share our experiences with others. We now have contact with health professionals in several countries who work with similar processes, but we would be pleased to hear from other countries who work with evidence-based procedures in health care.
