To review and summarize past activities of guidelines development at the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) to enhance understanding of its new role and facilitate the development of new guidelines.

The development and role of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines are discussed, and the new roles of the AHCPR are described.
