Abstract

Local use of practice guidelines requires paying close attention to the concerns of the patient within the framework of society, to the professional and educational needs of the provider, and to the realities of cost. One Veterans Affairs facility took the challenge of balancing these factors and developed their own algorithms for three cardiovascular disorders.
