Comments invited on APA Borderline Personality Disorder practice guideline by June 23

Comments Invited on Draft Practice Guideline

Your views sought on treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder proposals

ACLP members are invited to review and comment on the draft Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients with Borderline Personality Disorder, developed by the American Psychiatric Association (APA).

The APA’s Guideline Writing Group drafted the guideline based on a systematic review of the available evidence. Each statement (recommendation or suggestion) is separately rated according to the strength of the supporting research evidence and the balance of possible benefits and harms of the recommended or suggested actions.

In addition to specific statements, the draft guideline includes a review of strategies and caveats when implementing the recommendations and a discussion of the appropriateness of the recommendations to inform quality improvement activities.

A PDF version of the draft is available on the APA website here.

The deadline to comment is June 23, 2023.
