National Guideline Clearinghouse Website to Shut Down in July

April 26, 2018 - AHRQ National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC, recently made a statement stating that the website will not be available after July 16, 2018 because federal funding through AHRQ will no longer be available to support the NGC as of that date. Their full announcement states that AHRQ is receiving expressions of interest from stakeholders interested in carrying on NGC's work. It is not clear at this time, however, when or if NGC (or something like NGC) will be online again. In addition, AHRQ has not yet determined whether, or to what extent, the Agency would have an ongoing role if a stakeholder were to continue to operate the NGC. We will continue to post summaries of new and updated evidence-based clinical practice guidelines until July 2, 2018. For any questions, please contact
