CPGs, SOPs, PPGPs, Oh My! What Guidance Document Format is Right for You?

Are you confused about the right guidance document (e.g. policy, clinical practice guideline, procedure, etc.) to meet your needs? Join Katie McLean (Librarian Educator, NSHA Library Services) and Michelle Helliwell (Provincial Policy Manager, NSHA) as they explore the nitty gritty of guidance document definition and process.
