Clinical Practice Guidelines

The Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA) has published Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) on anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and depressive disorders. Each CPG is developed by an expert CPA working group, and reviewed and approved by the CPA’s Board of Directors.

It is the policy of the CPA to review each position paper, policy statement and clinical practice guideline every five years after publication or last review. Any such document on the CPA website that has been published more than five years ago and does not explicitly state it has been reviewed and retained as an official document of the CPA, either with revisions or as originally published, should be considered as a historical reference document only.
