The Visiting Editor Program provides training for health professionals working in developing countries who want to learn how to develop concise, point of care guidelines for use in their local health care settings.
The Visiting Editor Program offers two forms of training: in-country training for individuals or groups of individuals; and Australian-based training.
If you work in a developing country and are preparing to develop or update local, standard treatment guidelines, contact the Developing Countries Manager to discuss training options.

Dr Kazeem Oshikoya visited Therapeutic Guidelines as part of the Visiting Editor Program.
A Guideline Development Manual has been produced for low and middle-income countries to use as a framework for developing local guidelines. Supplying this manual to countries embarking on the task of writing new or updating existing guidelines is intended to provide guidance on the steps involved in the guideline development process. It is hoped that provision of this manual will allow local national medicines and therapeutics committees to better understand the steps involved in guideline production and highlight where they may have gaps in local resources and where assistance is available from TGL.
For more information contact the Developing Countries Program Manager at [email protected] to discuss how we can support your guideline development process.
