Guidelines Under Development

Visit this page often for a listing of the EAST Practice Management Guidelines (PMGs) and Evidence Based Reviews (EBRs) that are currently under development.  If a PMG that is 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 willl 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.

If you have a recommendation for a new PMG or EBR or to update existing ones, submit a proposal using the online proposal form. Proposals will be reviewed by the EAST Guidelines Committee. Notification of proposal approval will be sent to the proposer via email.
