Guidelines

The SSAI Clinical Practice Committee is devoted to develop, endorse and publish clinical practice guidelines to be used by Scandinavian anaesthesiologists and intensivists.

The GRADE methodology is used in preparing these guidelines and an outline of the work flow for preparing SSAI guidelines can be found here along with instructions on how the SSAI endorses non-SSAI clinical practice guidelines:
