How to Access Full-Text Guidelines

Where possible, the National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC) Web site provides links to the full-text guideline, either at the NGC Web site or another location (e.g., guideline developer's Web site).

If full-text is not available, NGC provides specific information on how to obtain a print copy of the guideline in the "Guideline Availability" field, found in the Brief Summary and Complete Summary views, and the "Availability of Full-Text" field, found in the Guideline Comparison view.

To link to the full-text guideline, you must be in the Brief Summary, Complete Summary, or Guideline Comparison view.

If a full-text guideline is available, the link Full-Text, located on the left-hand Summary navigation box will be active.

Please Note: Linking to the full-text document will cause a new browser window to open.
