Welcome to the Guidelines International Network.  We hope you find our website 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.
