Clinical Practice Guidelines

The ISN Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee (CPGC) was established in 2004 to address the ever-increasing number of guidelines being issued by various organizations and entities around the world. It was also formed due to the fact that ISN had been approached repeatedly — as the international society — for comments on (and endorsement of) guidelines.


It is not the intention of ISN to develop its own guidelines; however — through its Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee — ISN undertakes the following:

  • Supports KDIGO guidelines dissemination through ISN’s journal, Kidney International, and participates into planning meetings of the KDIGO advisory board. More information on KDIGO can be found by clicking HERE.
  • Evaluation of guidelines with particular emphasis on their impact on local practice
  • Formulation of recommendations back to the organizations issuing guidelines
  • Encouragement to develop guidelines focused on areas of unmet need
  • Endorsement of guidelines.

Endorsed Guidelines:

This section contains guidelines that meet the approval or receive the endorsement of ISN. These guidelines are produced or endorsed by a national or regional medical or health organization, professional society, government agency or expert panel.
