Clinical Practice Follow-up Guidelines

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) exit disclaimer
Clinical practice guidelines serve as a guide for doctors and outline appropriate methods of treatment and care. Using the best available evidence, ASCO's expert panels identify and develop practice recommendations for specific areas of cancer care that would benefit from the availability of practice guidelines.

National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) exit disclaimer
The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology™ are the recognized standard for clinical policy in the oncology community. These guidelines are updated continually and are based upon evaluation of scientific data integrated with expert judgment by multidisciplinary panels of expert physicians from NCCN member institutions. The NCCN guidelines have become the most widely used in oncology practice.
