American Society of Plastic Surgeons clinical practice guidelines and performance measures are developed using internationally recognized methodologies for evidence-based processes, which include a systematic review of the evidence to support guidelines (and guidelines in turn support performance measures). Both products are developed with multi-disciplinary work groups that include relevant stakeholders and patients whenever possible, a rigorous peer review and public comment process, and require formal approval and adoption by the ASPS Quality and Performance Measurement Committee and Executive Committee.
