Guidelines / Guidance Development
AASLD strives to review and update its Practice Guidelines every five (5) years, as necessary. Users are cautioned that in the interim, scientific and medical developments may supersede or invalidate, in whole or in part, specific recommendations in any Guideline. A Guideline is considered to be "inactive" if it has not been updated by AASLD in at least five (5) years, and for this reason particular care must be exercised in placing reliance on an inactive Guideline.
AASLD commissions and provides financial support for the formulation and production of Practice Guidelines / Guidances by volunteer experts. Financial support from commercial entities or the pharmaceutical industry is not accepted for the development of AASLD practice guidelines or guidances.
