Clinical Practice Guidelines

ECRI Guidelines Trust replaces AHRQ'S National Guideline Clearinghouse.

The ECRI Institute has launched ECRI Guidelines Trust, a repository of clinical practice guidelines.

From AHRQ: "Funding to support AHRQ's National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) ended on July 16, 2018."

Here's a great Explainer on the NGC situation.

Statement from ClinicalKey about coverage of guidelines in its database: "The guidelines that are sourced through the Agency for Healthcare Research (AHQR) and Quality National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) website will no longer be available on ClinicalKey after July 16th, 2018. Guidelines from the NGC represented about 22% of the total guidelines on Clinicalkey, this is why you are seeing the decrease in numbers. ClinicalKey will continue to host guidelines that are available as full-text journal articles. In addition as a replacement to the NGC, ClinicalKey will include clinician-curated guidelines and links to the full-text of additional practice guidelines available on the websites of professional and government agencies."
