This application directly accesses our Clinical Standard Work (CSW) Pathways. At Seattle Children’s, clinical standard work pathways are a documented standard approach that guides practitioners when providing care to specific patient populations. These clinical pathways improve the quality of care through standardization of treatment based on evidence in the published medical literature and/or expert opinion. Pathways are presented in an easy-to-read
algorithm format. Deeper levels of information are accessed through the use of hyperlinks.
When developing these pathways, committees of experts from different disciplines review the evidence to reach a consensus about treatments that result in the best outcomes for patients. The committees draw on Children’s organization-wide improvement approach – called
Continuous Performance Improvement (CPI) – to implement pathways and support change
Each pathway features:
1. Step by step decision algorithms from admit to discharge
2. Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria: Defines whether a patient is appropriate for a given pathway
3. Ability to Test Knowledge: Self assessment earns Category II CME Credit
4. Explanation of Evidence Rankings: Links to complete bibliography and explanation of how evidence was ranked
5. Summary of Version Changes: Chronologic summary of version changes
6. Highlighted clinically important warnings / pitfalls of care
7. Access to rationale and expanded information via hyperlinks
8. Discharge Criteria
