The AHRQ National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) Web site will not be available after July 16, 2018 because federal funding through AHRQ will no longer be available to support the NGC as of that date. AHRQ is receiving expressions of interest from stakeholders interested in carrying on NGC’s work. It is not clear at this time, however, when or if NGC (or something like NGC) will be online again. In addition, AHRQ has not yet determined whether, or to what extent, the Agency would have an ongoing role if a stakeholder were to continue to operate the NGC. They will continue to post summaries of new and updated evidence-based clinical practice guidelines until July 2, 2018. For any questions, please contact Mary.Nix@ahrq.hhs.gov.
The Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) 2018 Conference will take place from September 11-14, 2018 in Manchester. The theme is “Why We Do What We Do: The Purpose and Impact of Guidelines.” Registration is open. For more information, visit the G-I-N Conference Web site.
