ACP develops several different types of clinical recommedations, including clinical practice guidelines, clinical guidance statements, best practice advice, and practice points.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The Choosing Wisely® campaign was developed to promote conversations between physicians and patients to help patients choose care supported by evidence, not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received, free from harm, and truly necessary. AAFP is one of the leading physician specialty societies committed to supporting Choosing Wisely® with the goal of ensuring high-quality, cost-effective care to patients. To help reduce unnecessary or harmful treatments and tests, AAFP has identified tests and procedures that both doctors and patients should carefully consider and openly discuss before incorporating them into a treatment plan.

ECRI Guidelines Trust™
ECRI Guidelines Trust™ is a publicly available web-based repository of objective, evidence-based clinical guidance developed by nationally- and internationally-recognized medical organizations and medical specialty societies.. Its purpose is to provide physicians and other members of the healthcare community with up-to-date, clinical practices to advance safe and effective patient care.
U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
Created in 1984, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is an independent, volunteer panel of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine. The Task Force works to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services such as screenings, counseling services, and preventive medications. All recommendations are published on the Task Force’s website and/or in a peer-reviewed journal.
