Algorithms and Other Clinical Care Resources for Referring Providers

Seattle Children’s developed the algorithms and other clinical care resources below with input from primary care providers to support your care of your patients. You can find these resources easily any time via mobile phone using our QR code; print and post our flyer (full-sheet or half-sheet) in a visible spot at your workplace.

Additional resources: Clinical Standard Work Pathways.
