External Review of Guidelines

Healthcare professionals and relevant stakeholders in Saskatchewan are encouraged to take part as external reviewers of the draft SASK Guidelines. Peer review plays a crucial role in the development of guidelines. Both new, updated and locally endorsed guidelines that have undergone significant revisions undergo external review to ensure they are well-written, practical, and error-free.

Guidelines External Review Process

We rely on Saskatchewan healthcare professionals to review the draft guidelines. Our external review process includes sending regular mail to a random selection of Saskatchewan physicians, relevant specialists, and other healthcare providers, as well as emailing key partners in fields such as pharmacy, laboratory,  public health, and professional colleges and associations. The SASK Guidelines working group carefully reviews all feedback received.

Draft Guidelines and survey is posted below for all Saskatchewan health care providers to voluntarily participate in the review process and provide feedback.
