Guidelines

Guidelines are current best practice procedures based on available evidence and serve as an important contributor to high quality service delivery.

Guidelines are intended to be used alongside the therapist's clinical expertise and as such the clinician is ultimately responsible for the interpretation of the evidence-based guidelines in the context of their specific circumstances and service users.
