Guidelines

ESCMID supports the creation and distribution of carefully crafted, evidence-based guidance documents aimed to strengthen best practices in the diagnosis and treatment of Infectious Diseases (ID).

Vision

We have a forward-thinking vision to provide strong support to professionals practising within the fields of Clinical Microbiology (CM), Infection Control (IC), and ID. Taking on a versatile approach with the help of the ESCMID Guideline Subcommittee and the ESCMID Evidence Review Group, we select cutting-edge topics, employ an independent and robust methodology, and embrace a global perspective. In pursuit of excellence, we are proud to follow procedures for evidence appraisal and data extraction orchestrated by a dedicated group of well-trained Young Science Members (YSM). Panel members are handpicked to monitor any potential conflicts of interest.
