Clinical Policies

ACEP’s clinical policies are developed by the Clinical Policies Committee, guided by processes in accordance with national guideline-development standards. The policies are approved by the ACEP Board of Directors to provide guidance on the clinical management of emergency department patients. These ACEP Board-approved documents describe ACEP's policies on the clinical management of emergency department patients. These clinical policies are not intended to represent a legal standard of care for emergency physicians. ACEP recognizes the importance of the individual physician’s judgment and patient preferences.

The ACEP Clinical Policies Committee strives to be responsive to the most urgent questions regarding the recognition, evaluation, and management of clinical manifestations relevant to the practice of emergency medicine.
