Topic- or Specialty-Specific Guideline Databases

American Psychiatric Association Practice Guidelines

Cancer Guidelines Database -- Canadian and international cancer guidelines

Canadian Diabetes Association: Clinical Practice Guidelines

Pediatric Clinical Practice Guidelines and Policies (2023 edition) from the American Academy of Pediatrics

SOGC (Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada) Clinical Practice Guidelines --  These are no longer available free on the Society website, but are part of our journal subscription.  Go to Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada,  click "online version", click the "go" button under Clinical Key on the following page, and then copy the title of the guideline into the search box just under the journal title to "search this journal".  I would advise against using guideline numbers because these don't seem to be entered consistently.
