The 2014 report, the fourth and most comprehensive to date, reports on 1046 guidelines produced by more than 130 Australian guideline developers between 2005 and 2013.

The NHMRC guideline reports highlight the considerable investment in guideline production in Australia. They reinforce the need for better coordination to ensure that Australian clinicians and consumers have access to current, high quality, relevant guidelines in areas of identified need.
