The College of American Pathologists (CAP) Pathology and Laboratory Quality Center, along with our professional partners, is advancing the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine by bringing evidence-based guidelines, and consensus recommendations to the forefront of clinical decision making.
Adopting these guidelines helps pathologists and laboratory professionals to provide more effective testing with consistent, high-quality results, and expert interpretations.
Pathologists, laboratory professionals, and others may submit a topic for the CAP to consider developing.
Evidence-Based Guidelines (EBGs)
The CAP guidelines help pathologists and other clinicians:
- Make more informed decisions about diagnosis and optimal treatment.
- Place emphasis on the pathologist's role to the center of patient care
