Paediatric Clinical Practice Guidelines

The SA Paediatric Clinical Practice Guidelines are designed to assist clinicians with decisions about appropriate health care for children and young people aged 0-18 years, not including management of neonatal conditions.

The guidelines are designed to:

  • improve the quality and consistency of health care
  • reduce the use of unnecessary, ineffective or harmful interventions
  • facilitate treatment with the maximum chance of benefit, minimum risk of harm, and at an acceptable cost
  • assist decision-making in acute care of conditions where inappropriate care may lead to serious adverse consequences.

The SAPCG are underpinned by evidence-based clinical practice principles which take into account patients' preferences and clinicians' professional judgement. They are primarily aimed at clinicians working in primary care, local, regional, general or tertiary hospitals and should be used within the context of offering individualised care for patients.
