AACC Academy has recently developed a process for creating guidance documents that will impart the expertise of the Academy’s Fellows. These short documents are designed to provide guidance on hot topics in the field of laboratory medicine in an expedient manner that will achieve maximum impact.
If you are interested in proposing a guidance document on a specific topic, please review the Guidance Document Standard Operating Procedures for how to get started.
