ASCO develops and publishes clinical practice guidelines, provisional clinical opinions (PCOs), and guideline endorsements, providing evidence-based recommendations to serve as a guide for doctors and outline appropriate methods of treatment and care. The guidelines can also address specific clinical situations (disease-oriented) or use of approved medical products, procedures, or tests (modality-oriented). Multidisciplinary panels of experts, including patient advocates, develop ASCO’s clinical practice guidelines. Learn more about how advocates help create guidelines on the Cancer.Net Blog.

Submit Topics for Guideline Development

Each spring, a survey will be launched to provide ASCO members the opportunity to submit topics for guideline development. After the survey closes, member-suggested topics will be provided to the appropriate Guideline Advisory Group (AG) for review during their annual priority setting process. We welcome you to submit a topic via our online form. View our current list of guidelines and updates in development.
