Practice Parameters

Practice parameters, as developed by the Joint Task Force on Practice Parameters, are documents that establish boundaries for appropriate patient care. They acknowledge the range or variations that currently take place in the allergy community regarding management of allergic conditions and use of procedures to diagnose and treat these conditions. They attempt to promote consistency in practice while allowing for variable approaches based on individual patient differences using evidence from the medical literature to achieve good clinical practice.
