Linear Growth Measurement

​Growth is an important indicator of health in children. A multidisciplinary team at Blank Children's Hospital critically appraised and synthesized evidence to develop this clinical practice guideline on measuring length and height accurately and reliably. Posters and other tools are available to help health professionals and organizations implement evidence-based linear growth measurement practices. The clinical practice guideline is endorsed by the Pediatric Endocrinology Nursing Society.
