The SQUIRE development group has been working for several years to assess and revise the SQUIRE guidelines. After multiple iterations, we are now putting the final touches on SQUIRE 2.0. The revised guidelines will be more concise and focused. We will include a glossary of terms in the guidelines and a new Explanation and Elaboration document will also be available. Our website will also be revised this year with additional videos, interactive elements, and tools to help sharing of systematic efforts to improve the quality, safety, and value of healthcare.
