ESPE Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Funding Consensus Meetings and Guideline Development

The main aims of Consensus Meetings and Guidelines are:

  • To address a specific clinical topic
  • To review all evidence on the management of that topic
  • To discuss the strength of this evidence and formulate management plans
  • To generate a concise, clear write-up that can be used widely in clinical management by ensuring its publication in a relevant journal.
  • To highlight areas of management where evidence is lacking and research is required

Each proposal needs to be approved by the CPC and ESPE Council.
