Evidence-based Guidelines Affecting Policy, Practice and Stakeholder

The E-GAPPS conference took place December 10-11, 2012 at the New York Academy  of Medicine in New York City and was sponsored by Guidelines International Network North America in partnership with the Section on Evidence Based Health Care of the Academy.   All speakers filed complete disclosure statements and none reflected a financial conflict of interest with their participation.  These disclosure statements are available on request for review via ebmny@nyam.org.

The conference was organized into 4 themes, each of which was preceded by a keynote presentation.  The 4 theme segments included panels of plenary speakers followed by breakout sessions.  The keynote and plenary sessions were videotaped.  The links below provide access to all materials used at the conference.  When accessing the videos, we suggest you first open the slide presentation, in slide view, not in full screen.  Then activate the video and move down the slide menu on the left hand side of the slide screen in tandem with the presentation.
