Consensus Statements and Guidelines

The ESPE Clinical Practice Committee (CPC) supports the development of consensus statements and guidelines. The CPC also meets with counterparts from the other international Paediatric Endocrine Societies to plan joint developments. In addition, the CPC also reviews guidelines produced by other societies for inclusion on the ESPE website.

ESPE: Guidelines that are partially or fully funded by ESPE, with ESPE member involvement and full endorsement, after review, from the ESPE Clinical Practice Committee and ESPE Council. Clinical Practice Committee members will also be part of the guideline development group.
ENDORSED: Guidelines that are externally funded, but approved by the ESPE Clinical Practice Committee and ESPE Council, with ESPE Clinical Practice Committee member involvement in the guideline development group.
