Abstract

Successful implementation of Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) clinical practice guidelines must involve an institutional commitment and an interdisciplinary effort. This article describes how a pediatric nursing research committee took the leadership role in implementing the AHCPR acute pain guidelines for children. Steps toward implementation included assessment of current practice methods, nursing interventions, interdisciplinary interventions, and plans for evaluating the practice change through the institutional quality assessment and improvement program.
