Guidelines Under Development

If you have a recommendation for a new EAST Practice Management Guideline (PMG) or Evidence Based Review (EBR) or an update to an existing one, submit a proposal using the form below. Proposals will be reviewed by the EAST Guidelines Committee. Notification of proposal approval will be sent to the proposer via email.

If a PMG under development is in need of volunteers, a volunteer button will be activated. To volunteer as a team member, click the volunteer button for the PMG or EBR of interest and an email will be sent to the EAST Administrative Offices.  Your volunteer request will be reviewed by the Chair of the Guidelines Committee and confirmed by email notification.
