NHMRC has a legislated role in providing high quality evidence based health advice to government and the community. One way it does this is through the development of high quality clinical practice and public health guidelines. NHMRC also has a role in approving clinical practice guidelines developed by external groups, and in setting standards for high quality guideline development.
