ACP Clinical Recommendations
ACP develops three different types of clinical recommendations: Clinical Practice Guidelines, Clinical Guidance Statements, and Best Practice Advice. ACP's goal is to provide clinicians with recommendations based on the best available evidence; to inform clinicians of when there is no evidence; and finally, to help clinicians deliver the best health care possible.
Current Guidelines - based on a systematic review of the literature.
Guidance Statements - based on a review of existing guidelines.
Best Practice Advice - developed through a review of available evidence and guidelines; evaluates the value of diagnostic tests and therapeutic interventions.
You can access these ACP Clinical Recommendations on your smartphone.
