Currently, many SLP publications (newsletters, Leader, special interest groups, journals) are addressing the topic of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs). Yet, they have not addressed the effectiveness of CPGs to change clinician’s behavior. We need to address the need for effective methods of guideline dissemination and implementation to improve the adoption of clinical practice guidelines.
While the techniques for developing evidence-based CPGs have emerged quickly (Eddy, D., 1982; Evidence-Based Medicine Working Group, 1992; Grimshaw, J. & Russell, I., 1993; Institute of Medicine, 1990; Institute of Medicine, 1992; Woolf, 1992; to name a few), effective techniques to insure the adoption of CPGs have not (Cabana et al., 1999; Curry, S., 2000; Robertson et al., 1996; Sugarman, J., 1997; Grimshaw & Russell, 1993; Haynes & Haines, 1998). Cabana et al. (1999)  framed the issue well: “Despite wide promulgation, clinical practice guidelines have had limited effect on changing physician behavior” (p. 1458).
