This evidence-based guideline (open access) was developed to facilitate efficient diagnosis and effective treatment of acne vulgaris in the Canadian population. With early diagnosis, treatment of active lesions and prevention of adverse sequelae, the health of many Canadians with acne may be improved.

As well, an interview with Matthew Smith, senior lecturer at the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland.
