The CHBG policy

The aim of The CHBG is to provide valid information on interventions in patients with liver or biliary diseases to clinicians, allied health professionals, and the public (ie, consumers) through publications of The CHBG's systematic reviews in The Cochrane Library or as sister publications in other medical journals.

Please note that the content of The CHBG's publications are not intended to offer personal medical advice. The Editorial Team cannot respond to questions from individual patients, provide second opinion, or make specific recommendations regarding prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care. Those issues should be addressed directly with your health-care provider.

In addition, evidence ensued from conclusions of The CHBG's systematic reviews and the decision to use or not to use the evidence for further recommendations or statements by guidelines' panels rests with the respective decision-making bodies. The CHBG cannot be hold responsible for the interpretation of the evidence by respective decision-making bodies either.
