CPG Infobase: Clinical Practice Guidelines


The CPG Infobase is a database of evidence-based Canadian clinical practice guidelines (CPGs). Maintained by Joule, a CMA company, it includes approximately 1,200 CPGs developed or endorsed by authoritative medical or health organizations in Canada.

CMA members access CPG Infobase through Joule on cma.ca. In late 2018, this tool—with some additional features—will make the move to a new home on joulecma.ca. Although we anticipate a seamless experience, if you experience any interruption in service, please contact memberservicecentre@cma.ca/Tel: 888-855-2555 (toll-free).
