Extract

The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) has successfully provided high-quality clinical practice guidelines for over 10 years. Over the last 6 years, a concerted effort has been supervised by the ACCP Health and Science Policy Committee to ensure that these documents move as close as possible to an evidence-based platform. The reader is invited to visit the Health and Science Policy Committee Web site to learn more about the process of the ACCP in developing evidence-based guidelines.1 Some evidence-based guideline publication topics include lung cancer,2 pulmonary arterial hypertension,3 antithrombotic and thrombolytic therapy,4 aerosol therapy,5 atrial fibrillation after coronary arterial bypass grafting,6 and cough.7 A forthcoming evidence-based guideline will highlight occupational asthma.
