The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is in progress of redesigning the National Guideline Clearinghouse site (NGC). NGC is a collection of clinical practice guidelines aimed at improving information access for promotion of policy development and health care quality.
A few highlights of the changes are as follows:
- Access to a growing collection of expert commentaries. These may offer reviews of EBM topics, issues related to guideline development, or critiques of guidelines.
- Access to annotated bibliographies. You can search over 5000 citations for information about guidelines, and access the journal citations easily by using PubMed links provided.
- Significant improvement in guideline summary display.
- Improved organization, visual appeal, and access to content previously available.
