Changes to National Guideline Clearinghouse

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.
