This webinar describes the AHRQ’s National Guideline Clearinghouse’s (NGC’s) readiness to implement, as well as participating guideline developer organizations’ readiness to meet the revised criteria for inclusion of clinical practice guidelines. Changes are underway in NGC processes and NGC site functionality to support implementation of the revised criteria. These changes are described. In addition, examples of "goodness of fit" assessments conducted to determine if guidelines meet the revised criteria are shared and audit results indicating the criteria most often not met are highlighted. Plus, implications for guideline developers and potential solutions to facilitate guideline developer readiness for the June 1, 2014 implementation date are presented.
