College Commences Clinical Consensus Statement Development

In early 2013, the ACFAS Board of Directors approved funding to commence development of new clinical consensus statements. The Board sunsetted the College’s prior clinical practice guidelines (CPG) in 2011 as they did not meet the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) standards for CPGs, and it would be cost-prohibitive to develop IOM-compliant CPGs. These new clinical consensus statements will be shorter, slightly less-evidence-based medicine (EBM) stringent, and more user friendly than the CPGs.
