The SSAI Clinical Practice Committee is devoted to define and publish clinical guidelines to be implemented and used by all Scandinavian Anaesthesiologists and Intensivists.

The GRADE methodology is used in preparing the guidelines and an outline of the work-flow for preparing SSAI guidelines can be found here:
