Overview and Examples of Medical Standing Orders
Resource: Standing Orders
Standing orders and protocols allow patient care to be shared among non-clinician members of the care team, like medical assistants and nurses. In accordance with Key Driver 4: Create and support high functioning teams to deliver high-quality evidence-based care, this overview explains how standing orders empower both clinical and non-clinical staff in care teams. The resource provides examples of standing orders for different medical scenarios that detail how evidence-based recommendations can be integrated into the practice’s workflow, supporting Key Driver 1: Seek, select, and customize the best evidence for use by the practice.
