PatientOrderSetsis pleased to announce a new project with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) for the development of screening and treatment technologies based on their Professional Guidelines relating to sexually transmitted infections for use across phases of care. This project involves close collaboration between PatientOrderSets.com’s clinical research team and PHAC stakeholders, ensuring the project’s outcome will fit with the diversity of clinical needs in Canadian public health.

PHAC is the Canadian governmental agency responsible for public health, emergency preparedness and response, and infectious and chronic disease control and prevention. Responsible for a range of public health requirements—including infection and disease control, knowledge translation, and research support—PHAC plays a vital role in supporting the best possible care in Canada. With a mandate for collaboration, PHAC is an excellent partner for PatientOrderSets.com in our shared efforts in improving access to knowledge and best practice at the point of care.

Under this project, PatientOrderSets.com’s Clinical Research and Development Team will review six sexually transmitted and blood borne infection guidelines produced by the Professional Guidelines and Public Health Practice Division of PHAC. These guidelines are based on the best available evidence in the medical literature and will be translated into comprehensive order sets that take that same knowledge and make it actionable in the clinical setting.
