The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) along with the National Partnership for Women & Families released the results of “The Project on Facility Guidelines for the Safe Performance of Primary Care and Gynecology Procedures in Offices and Clinics” on Jan. 24, 2019. The Project was undertaken to support evidence-informed policy regarding procedures performed in these settings. The goal of the Project was to further healthcare quality, safety, affordability, and patient experience without imposing unjustified burdens on patients’ access to care or on clinicians’ ability to provide care within their scope of practice.
The findings were published in Obstetrics & Gynecology (The Green Journal) as “Consensus Guidelines for Facilities Performing Outpatient Procedures: Evidence Over Ideology”.
