How are guidelines selected for inclusion on the Portal?

The Portal contains links to Australian clincial practice guidelines that have been assessed against the selection criteria and are less than five years old. The Portal selection criteria can be found here. The inclusion criteria have been reviewed and as a result guidelines which are not evidence based will not be selected for inclusion on the Portal from 2015 onwards. The Guideline Team runs routine searches to identify freely available clinical practice guidelines which are assessed for inclusion on the Portal. We also ask members of the community to submit guidelines they use in their work to be assessed for inclusion on the Portal.
