Management Guidelines
~ Genetics of Breast & Ovarian Cancer

All manner of clinical practice guidelines for prevention of cancers, surveillance and early detection, and any other clinical management for persons at high risk of, but not diagnosed with cancer. Also includes any practice guidelines for the prevention or detection of new cancers in cancer patients and survivors.

Not just clinical guidelines themselves, but any papers dealing with any aspect of guidelines, such as assessments of their effectiveness, assessments of providers' adherence to guidelines, press reports announcing new guideline's release, and so forth.
