Book Navigation


Welcome to the Guidelines International Network.  We hope you like our website and find it easy to navigate, as well as informative.  Our vision has been to make the website technically responsive on all devices as well as easy to navigate, but most importantly to facilitate communication, engagement and collaboration with and amongst our members.

The website is here for you, so please use it and give us feedback – we want to hear of ways to make it even better for you.  There are lots of  features, so please take a look at the Project/Collaboration board where new projects and working groups will seek volunteers, as well as the areas for all of the  working groups and regional communities along with their discussion boards.

What we do

Our mission is to lead, strengthen and support collaboration in guideline development, adaptation and implementation. As a major player on the global healthcare quality stage, G-I-N facilitates networking, promotes excellence and helps our members create high quality clinical practice guidelines that foster safe and effective patient care.

Our networking role is enhanced through annual conferences, region-specific communities and topic-specific working groups in which participants exchange knowledge and improve methodology.  We welcome your participation in our vibrant community and are delighted to share, through this web portal, a wide variety of support tools and publications to enhance guideline development and knowledge transfer.

    Have your say

    • Nov 29, 2013

      This is an area that we have developed where we will raise topics important to G-I-N and the guideline world in order to hear your opinions.

      We are keen to seek much more active engagement from our membership, but understand that not everyone has the time to take part in working groups, so this is a quick and easy way to interact.

      The board will be moderated by a different thought leader each month, who will answer questions and keep the conversation alive.

      We look forward to hearing your opinions!
