Clinical Pathways

Clinical pathways are standardised, evidence-based multidisciplinary management plans, which identify an appropriate sequence of clinical interventions, timeframes, milestones and expected outcomes for an homogenous patient group.

Clinical pathways aim to

  • support the implementation of evidence-based practice
  • improve clinical processes by reducing risk
  • reduce duplication through the use of a standardised tool
  • reduce variation in health service process delivery
