Dear Reader, Clinical guidelines are increasingly important in setting practice standards and meeting quality measures, and NEJM Journal Watch wants to help you keep up with the guidelines most important to your practice. Our 90 clinician-editors regularly survey more than 250 medical journals to identify the latest critical information. As part of this effort, we evaluate a broad range of clinical guidelines in a variety of disciplines, choose those with the most clinical impact, and summarize them, highlighting key points and identifying what’s new in a feature called Guideline Watch. This collection of Guideline Watches, published from September 2016 to the present, covers a range of guidelines—from the new U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease to updated colorectal cancer screening recommendations and the 2017 GOLD guidelines for diagnosing and managing COPD —but the common denominator is their relevance to, and implications for, clinical practice. The topics in this collection span adult and pediatric practice, outpatient and inpatient medicine, and primary care and subspecialty perspectives. Although not every guideline will be relevant to your particular practice, we believe that you’ll find something of interest in each of them. We hope you enjoy this compilation and find it useful for providing the best and most responsible patient care, and we invite you to interact with us at JWatch.org.
Allan S. Brett, MD NEJM Journal Watch Editor-in-Chief
