Get With The Guidelines - Clinical Practice Guidelines (GWTG)

Can the organization use the GWTG Stroke program as our Clinical Practice Guidelines?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The Get With The Guidelines (GWTG) stroke registry is a multi-faceted database that hospitals can use. It does include a data collection tool for the performance measures (called the PMT or Patient Management Tool) and the guidelines are tied to it. If the organization uses "GWTG - Stroke" as its clinical practice guidelines, it must be able to cite which acute treatment protocols it is basing its Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) on.
