MISHC physicians develop best practice protocols using current research and discussion among our consortium members. Best practice protocols are intended to be a brief, easily digestible snapshot of current best practices. They are intended to promote consistent application of best practices among physicians in Michigan, and should be viewed as a supplement to national guidelines.
MISHC best practice protocols are based on consortium-wide consensus at the time of publication. Protocols will be updated regularly, should not be considered formal guidance, and do not replace the professional opinion of the treating physician.
