Practice Guides

Practice guides are principles, a series of steps, or a description of phases that can be implemented to achieve a similar effect to that identified in the research synthesis. A practice guide may be developed in the form of a user-friendly brochure, newsletter, video, audio-tape, and/or narrative in which the relationship between characteristics and outcomes is carefully explained. Practice Guides are still in development, and will soon be available online.
