Clinical Practice Guidelines

Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) define the use of diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive modalities, including non-invasive and invasive procedures, in the management of patients with various liver diseases. They are intended to assist physicians and other healthcare providers, as well as, patients and interested individuals in the clinical decision making process by describing a range of generally accepted approaches for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of specific liver diseases. CPGs have to be distinguished from consensus statements and position papers.

  • A consensus statement reports the conclusions of a consensus conference
  • A position paper reflects the opinions of experts
