ESMO Guidelines Methodology

The ESMO Guidelines Committee (GLC) is responsible for the production and update of ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines and Consensus Statements.

In order to produce high-quality and well-formulated guidelines it is necessary to have strict procedures in place which provide clear instruction and are readily available to authors, editors and panel members.

To assist those using and/or evaluating the ESMO guidelines the GLC decided to openly publish the ESMO guidelines methodology here on the ESMO website.
