About the public comment period
This AGA evidence-based clinical practice guideline employs the GRADE system (Grades of Recommendation Assessment, Development and Evaluation), which provides a user-friendly way to rate the quality of the evidence, as well as the strength of clinical recommendations. The public comment period is an integral part of AGA’s guideline development process. Public comment allows AGA members, as well as key stakeholders, to review and comment on upcoming guidelines and their accompanying technical reviews.

Once an AGA guideline panel releases the drafts for public comment, identified stakeholders are alerted and have 30 days to submit their comments through an online survey. After the 30-day period ends, the guideline panel reviews and responds to the comments within two weeks. Revisions to the draft documents are at the discretion of the panel, but all comments must be considered and responses internally documented.
