AbstractSAGE is a current and comprehensive searchable database that houses English-language cancer control guidelines that have been rated using the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE) II, the current gold standard in appraising guideline reporting quality. The intent is to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the guidelines, analyze and present the extent of guideline duplication, and identify gaps in the cancer guideline enterprise. It is hoped that SAGE will raise the standard in the science of developing clinical practice guidelines, reduce the amount of duplication, both across Canada and worldwide, and most importantly, facilitate evidence-based decision-making by clinicians and policy and systems leaders across Canada.
