We’re Moving!

The CCS is happy to announce that the CCS Guideline Programs website will be merged with the newly redesigned! The new Guideline Programs section of the CCS website will be more user friendly and easy to navigate.

The Guideline Library was the first section to be merged with the new CCS website and is now available here.

This new library contains all CCS Guidelines, Position Statements, Consensus Conferences, Commentaries, Canadian Perspectives, and Standards of Practice. The library also includes many new features including a sort function, a filter function, a topic column and information on available resources.

The next sections of the Guideline Programs website to be moved will be our About Us and Apps pages.

We hope that you enjoy the new website and look forward to your comments and feedback.
