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.
You can also access ACP Guidelines on your smartphone.
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.
Patient summaries are available for many of ACP's guidelines and guidance statements.
Request bulk reprints of all guidelines published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
