Peer Review Alert 

    The Peer Review Board issues an Alert each time the Board needs to communicate information in regard to peer review Standards and guidance. Annually, the Board will evaluate articles to excerpt and incorporate into the Standards and related guidance. Articles that are transitional, are not appropriate to be incorporated into the Standards and guidance, or both, will remain in PRP Section 3200, Peer Review Alerts.
