* Practice Tools (Fact Sheets, Frequently Asked Questions) are less restrictive than a checklist, with no perception that something has to be done. These are at the bottom of the hierarchy of practice-related documents with regard to rigorous process. “Things to Consider” is one example of a practice tool. Information listed is to help you do your job, not tell you what to do. Practice tools should not be interpreted as the ‘standard of care’.
