Topic Submission Process

To continue to create high quality, relevant guidelines CHEST relies on the input and commitment of members, volunteers, leaders, and staff to define and pursue those opportunities. Topics can be submitted for consideration in the development of future guideline, consensus statement or hybrid documents. Proposals for new or updated guidelines or portions of guidelines (PICO questions) may be submitted at any time for review and potential resource allocation on a continual basis.

Proposed clinical topic areas that meet the following criteria will be prioritized for development:


The CHEST Guidelines Oversight Committee reviews all submitted topic proposals. Please allow six weeks for proposal notifications to be sent to applicants.
