ICTMG projects

The ICTMG activities are primarily managed through two types of projects: "Guideline Development Group (GDG)" projects and "Implementation and Dissemination" projects.

All projects are led by a minimum of one ICTMG Full Member and may include Full Members and Project Members in their teams. "GDG" projects bring together clinical, methodology experts and patients to develop or update an ICTMG guideline. "Implementation and Dissemination" projects are brought together to develop resources and activities to facilitate the dissemination and implementation of ICTMG guidelines.

Full Members and Project Members can join a Project by completing the online Project Application Form.
