Step 3: Develop Evidence-Based Recommendation Statement


Summary: The EGAPP Working Group (EWG) reviews the evidence report, considers contextual issues, and may consider other
sources of evidence. A draft recommendation statement is developed, peer-reviewed, and submitted for publication.


EWG Recommendation Statements are based on CDC-commissioned evidence reports, other review of evidence as needed, the quality of available data, and potential clinical and social impact of using the test in practice.


Who is involved: EWG, with support from CDC-based EGAPP staff and consultants.


Transparency: Review of comments from industry and a range of stakeholders (e.g., from professional organizations, health plans, consumer groups, and public health programs).
