Improving Clinical Practice Guidelines

How can we facilitate the adoption of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) among healthcare providers and encourage meaningful patient-provider communication?

CommunicateHealth worked with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) on a national effort to reduce cardiovascular disease by implementing CPGs. The team observed and mapped clinic workflow, conducted interviews with clinicians and patients, and developed recommendations for audience- and setting-specific tools for clinicians, health care systems, and patients.

Our formative research included conducting a collaging study with clinicians and patients to uncover subconscious preferences and beliefs related to cardiovascular health.
