Clinical Guidelines

AGA’s clinical guidelines are evidence-based recommendations to help guide your clinical practice decisions based on rigorous systematic reviews of the medical literature. AGA utilizes the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) system. Learn more about GRADE

Our guidelines are regularly reviewed for accuracy, relevance, and clinical impact. AGA endorses guidelines that meet the National Academy of Medicine’s rigorous criteria for evidence-based clinical recommendations. 

AGA is dedicated to transparency in the development of clinical guidelines. Read our statement on the integrity of AGA’s clinical guideline process.
