RNAO defines "Best Practice Guidelines are systematically developed statements/recommendations based on the best evidence to inform clinical and management decision-making for better outcomes for clients". While WHO defines Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) as "set of evidence-based statements that are developed systematically on topics related to clinical care". Both CPG and BPG are developed to support healthcare professionals when making clinical decisions.
These statements would help you in choosing desirable diagnostic tests or the optimal treatment regimens for specific diagnoses; generally based on the best available evidence.

The International Health Regulations, or IHR (2005), represent an agreement between 196 countries including all WHO Member States to work together for global health security. Through IHR, countries have agreed to build their capacities to detect, assess and report public health events. WHO plays the coordinating role in IHR and, together with its partners, helps countries to build capacities.
These guidelines provide insight and direction on specific diagnostic and treatment modalities in the diagnosis and management of patients. The guidelines cover evidence-based recommendations collected from rigorous systematic review and synthesis of medical literature
