Guidelines

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.

Comparative Guideline Tables

Comparative Guideline Tables are succinct summaries of recommendations from a variety of US and international organizations regarding controversial topics in screening, prevention, and management. Tables describe important gaps in guideline recommendations and provide clinical recommendations from ACP.
