The GUIDE-M Map, created using the MindMeister© software, provides users with a complete visual of the GUIDE-M model. Also included in the Map is the evidence supporting each component of the GUIDE-M, called Narratives. The software allows users to view GUIDE-M at its various levels.
GUIDE-M has been organized into 6 layers of components that represent a variety of factors related to optimizing practice guideline implementability. The top layer of GUIDE-M is represented by 3 tactics followed by their associated domains which have been colour-coded to represent their related groupings. Under each domain are the layers of (i) sub-domains, (ii) attributes, (iii) sub-attributes and (iv) elements.
