New ISTH Guidance Development Process Announced - Proposals for Topics Invited

Over the last few years, the ISTH – particularly through the excellent work of our Scientific and Standardization Committee and its Subcommittees – has developed several recommendations to provide guidance on specific clinical (therapeutic and/or diagnostic) questions of broad interest and applicability to the ISTH membership and wider medical/scientific community and for which evidence-based data is limited.

The ISTH has now decided that it would like to open the process and invite our colleagues from around the world to submit requests and/or proposals for the development of guidance documents.

To help with this goal, the Society has developed a new process for guidance submission under the leadership of the newly reconstituted Guidelines and Guidance Committee. Guidance documents produced by the ISTH are brief, focused statements of informed opinion on the diagnosis and management of disorders of hemostasis and thrombosis by experienced clinicians who are recognized authorities in the field and well acquainted with the existing medical and scientific literature. These statements are primarily intended to provide direction to practitioners for the management of disorders which lack data from randomized clinical trials for high level evidence based recommendations.

Please read here more information on the development process of guidance documents, the Guidelines and Guidance Committee, as well as how to propose topics for guidance development.
