The 2020 Risk-Based Management Consensus Guidelines have several important differences from the 2012 Guidelines, while retaining many of its principles, such as the principle of equal management for equal risk. Rather than consider test results in isolation, the new guidelines use current and past results to create individualized assessments of a patient’s risk of progressing to precancer or cancer. The body of research informing these guidelines demonstrated differences in risk of precancer based on prior screening history, and specific screening results. Using this research, the guidelines Working Groups developed risk assessments to allow clinicians to better triage those likely to develop pre-cancer in the next five years. The risk assessments and resulting Clinical Action Thresholds recommend which patients require expedited treatment, further workup, or surveillance, as well as those who may return safely to routine screening. The goals of the ASCCP RiskBased Management Consensus Guidelines are to increase accuracy and reduce complexity for providers and patients. Because the new Risk-Based Management Guidelines will be electronic, updates and new technologies will be incorporated at a much faster rate than in previous iterations of guidelines.
