Evidence to Improve Care

Anxiety Disorders

Care in All Settings


A quality standard currently in development



This quality standard addresses care for people with anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. It addresses care for people of all ages (with some limitations in the paediatric population owing to a lack of guideline evidence). The standard addresses all care settings, with a particular focus on primary care and community-based care. Read their Terms of Reference.

The work on this quality standard started in December 2017.
