Guidelines Collaboration Overview

Guidelines Collaboration Working Group

Working Group Aims & Objectives

The G-I-N GCWG will accomplish the following:

  • Provide an outlet for sharing best practices and lessons learned from past experiences collaborating with one or more other guideline developing organisations;
  • Publish papers based on these best practices and learnings;
  • Create tools and resources for future guideline collaborations; and
  • Develop a cohesive group of dedicated individuals whose expertise will serve the larger G-I-N membership as mentors in the area of collaboration.


Proposed Deliverables:

Potential projects and deliverables of the G-I-N GCWG Guideline Collaboration Working Group are:

  • A published paper on common challenges in guideline development and how to overcome them.
  • An inclusive collaboration checklist or toolkit (potentially building off existing guideline development checklists), which will include such documents as a template Memorandum of Understanding addressing important points that must be considered and agreed upon in advance of any collaborative effort.
  • The unique challenges that present in different settings or geographic communities need to be addressed in this project.
  • A current international effort to define categories of endorsement (one level of collaboration) is under consideration as a possible contribution to this toolkit.
  • Materials will be posted to or made available on the G-I-N webpage devoted to this Working Group.
  • Regular updates will be provided to the G-I-N Board through the assigned G-I-N Board Liaison.
