ESO Newsletter – Committee Corner: Guidelines Board

The ESO Guidelines Board aims to provide guidelines that follow the highest standards and present all relevant evidence on a particular clinical issue in order to help physicians to weigh the benefits and risks of a particular diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. Guidelines are helpful in everyday clinical medical decision-making.

ESO maintains an open directory of all published guidelines related to stroke as well as a stroke pocket guidelines app for easy access to new guidelines. An overview of all published and ongoing guidelines can be found in the ESO Guideline Directory.

The Guidelines Board would like to welcome all ESO members to send their ideas on new topics to the ESO Guidelines Board (

If you are interested in learning more about the process that the ESO follows to develop guidelines, please apply to attend the 8th Guideline Development Workshop which will be held in Milan on May 21st.
