Guideline Development and Committees

Expert Committees

Composition: The Clinical Guidelines Program works directly with committees composed of experts in the field who represent multiple disciplines (medicine, nursing, psychology, pharmacy, public health, social work, mental health), clinical specialties (infectious diseases, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, hepatology, pediatrics, psychiatry, dentistry, prevention, etc.), and various geographic regions of New York State.

A Clinical Guidelines Program Steering Committee provides oversight and strategy to the following Clinical Guidelines Program committees, each of which is responsible for developing and updating clinical practice guidelines that fall under its area of expertise. Current committees (November 2016) include the following:

Financial disclosure and confidentiality agreement: All potential and active committee members are required to sign a confidentiality agreement and to disclose annually all financial relationships with commercial entities or gifts that may be actual, potential, or perceived as conflicts of interest. Committee members must report financial relationships with commercial entities that have existed in the 12 months prior to or are expected to exist in the 12 months after the date on which they sign their disclosure form.

Guideline development process: When the Clinical Guidelines Program identifies the need to develop or update a guideline, the committee under whose purview the guideline falls convenes to determine the goals of the guideline and its content, review the published literature, and weigh new evidence for recommendations. Text is then drafted by an author who has experience with the topic of the guideline.  The guideline draft is edited by the team at JHU, and then reviewed and modified by the committee. This rigorous development process may entail multiple rounds of review, revision, rating and editing. Decision making occurs by consensus, and all guideline recommendations are reviewed by and receive the consensus approval of the full guideline committee. 

Evidence-based Recommendations: All recommendations are rated to reflect the strength of each recommendation and the quality of the supporting evidence. Ratings are reached through review of the evidence and consensus decision. If the published evidence in support of a particular recommendation is not sufficient, the group relies on collective best practices experience to develop a final statement. The rating scheme for recommendations appears below.

Recommendation Rating Scheme: 

  • Strength of recommendation: A (Strong), B (Moderate), C (Optional)
  • Quality of evidence: I (One or more randomized trials with clinical outcomes and/or validated laboratory endpoints), II (One or more well-designed, nonrandomized trials or observational cohort studies with long-term clinical outcomes), III (Expert opinion)

External review: All guidelines are reviewed by external experts in the field and by the AIDS Institute’s Consumer Advisory Committee. 

Final approval: The guideline is submitted to the AIDS Institute for review and final approval prior to publication. The AI may request additional review by other agencies and organizations when applicable.

Guideline Updates: Members of guideline committees monitor developments ongoing to maintain guideline currency, at regular intervals. Newly published data that provides support for existing recommendations will be cited in the text and the studies will be added to the reference list. If newly published data prompts a revision to recommendations or rationale, a planning committee proposes appropriate edits and determines whether any changes warrant full committee review and approval.
