Care Directive Guidelines

A care directive is an organizational policy developed in consultation with prescriber(s) for an intervention or series of interventions to be implemented by another care provider for a range of clients with identified health conditions or needs when specific circumstances exist. The purpose of a care directive is to provide safe, timely, effective and efficient client care and to optimize the practice of all care providers. We developed this practice guideline to provide an overview of care directives and describe the roles of the nurse in their implementation.
