[Correspondence] Differences in clinical practice guideline authorship by gender

Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are systematically developed statements designed to guide clinical decision making for patient populations around the world. The content of CPGs should reflect international diversity, as should the authors who write them.1 Although studies have evaluated gender representation of authors of original medical research,2,3 the gender of CPG authors has not been studied. We sought to evaluate the representation of female physician authors, and of female authors overall, in CPGs.
