COVID-19 update: During this unprecedented global crisis, we’ve been working nonstop to develop protocols, policies and recommendations for the care of known or suspected COVID-19 patients, the safety of healthcare workers and health of our communities. We hope that by sharing our work, we can collaborate and inform your teams to be able to spend more time responding to and caring for your patients.
See UW Medicine’s screening and testing algorithms, policy statements and protocols.
UW Medicine develops clinical care pathways to document standard management and treatment of specific patient populations across their continuum of care. To ensure all aspects of the patient’s care are in coordination, a multi-disciplinary team works together to create the pathway document as well as a supplemental caremap to be used in patient and family education.
Pathways are intended only as a guide for practitioners. Pathways should be adapted to each specific patient based on practitioners’ professional judgment and their consideration of the unique circumstances and needs of each patient and their family. Each healthcare organization should consider their individual practices and processes for best outcomes.
