About German Disease Management Guidelines
How we started
The National Disease Management Guidelines Programme - "German NDMG Programme" was set up in 2002 by the German Medical Association in order to provide evidence-based medical guidance for disease management programmes recommended by the Federal Joint Committee.
In 2003 the NDMG Programme became a joint project of
German Medical Association - GMA - (in Geman: Bundesaerztekammer - BAEK),
National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians - NASHIP (in German: Kassenaerztliche Bundesvereinigung - KBV).
How we work today
The NDMG Programme is a not-for-profit project set up to promote effective delivery of health and disability services within the framework of disease management in Germany, based on best available evidence from research and practice. A Steering Committee representing the programme partners GMA, AWMF, NASHIP governs the NDMG Programme.
As a joint project of the federal umbrella organisations of scientific medical societies and medical self administration in Germany, the NDMG Programme guarantees state of the art development, updating and implementation of evidence based guidelines as promoted by the Guidelines International Network G-I-N (cf. our methodological site Methodik - in German, English version under development).
The NDMG Programme relies on a broad-based collaborative network of experts from medical research and form in- and outpatient care, opinion leaders and consumers, designing tools to promote an evidence-based culture within the German health and disability sector. These tools include evidence-based guidelines, the circulation of the latest evidence-based news from Germany and abroad, and training.
