How to Create A Guidelines Page

The following steps should be followed when adding or updating the guidelines:

Select a Topic

  • Click here to get a list of valid American Heart Association medical and scientific statements and practice guidelines to work on for this project.
  • To claim a topic, email WikiDoc [2] with the name of the topic you are choosing.
  • Active assignments can be viewed here.

Next Steps

1. Open the disease page you have chosen to add or update the guidelines.

2. Start with the second-level heading (==) and add "(DO NOT EDIT)" at the end of the title as shown in the example below.

==2011 ACCF/AHA Guideline for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (DO NOT EDIT)==

3. Use the third-level heading (===) for the subsection and add "(DO NOT EDIT)" at the end of subsection-title as shown in the example below.

4. Use following codes to make tables for adding the guidelines according to their classification in the following order:

Class I

What you type,

{|class="wikitable"
|-
| colspan="1" style="text-align:center; background:LightGreen"|[[ACC AHA guidelines classification scheme#Classification of Recommendations|Class I]]
|-
| bgcolor="LightGreen"|"'''1.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  A]])''"
|-
| bgcolor="LightGreen"|”'''2.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  C]])''"
|-
| bgcolor="LightGreen"|”'''3.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  B]])''"
|}

What it looks like,

Class I
"1. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: A)"
2. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: C)"
3. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: B)"

Class III

What you type,

{|class="wikitable"
|-
| colspan="1" style="text-align:center; background:LightCoral"|[[ACC AHA guidelines classification scheme#Classification of Recommendations|Class III]]
|-
| bgcolor="LightCoral"|"'''1.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  C]])''"
|-
| bgcolor="LightCoral"|”'''2.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  A]])''"
|-
| bgcolor="LightCoral"|”'''3.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  B]])''"
|}

What it looks like,

Class III
"1. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: C)"
2. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: A)"
3. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: B)"

Class II

What you type,

{|class="wikitable"
|-
| colspan="1" style="text-align:center; background:LemonChiffon"|[[ACC AHA guidelines classification scheme#Classification of Recommendations|Class II]]
|-
| bgcolor="LemonChiffon"|"'''1.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  C]])''"
|-
| bgcolor="LemonChiffon"|”'''2.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  A]])''"
|-
| bgcolor="LemonChiffon"|”'''3.'''  (Paste guideline here) ''([[ACC AHA guidelines classification  scheme#Level of Evidence|Level of Evidence:  B]])''"
|}

What it looks like,

Class II
"1. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: C)"
2. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: A)"
3. (Paste guideline here) (Level of Evidence: B)"

5. Include the reference article in the sources section as shown in the example below.

What you type,

==Sources==
*2011  ACCF/AHA Guideline for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery: A Report  of the American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart  Association
Task Force on Practice Guidelines.

What it looks like,
