SIGN Guidelines


- eHealth Award Winner 2011 - Best NHS Scotland use of Mobile Technology -

-----

SIGN guideline recommendations are available on the move with the award-winning SIGN app. Developed by the SIGN Executive in collaboration with Root Creative, Glasgow.

Updated: March 2015

New content includes:

SIGN 50: The updated edition of the Quick Reference Guide for our Guideline Developer's Handbook
SIGN 141: British guideline on the management of asthma

Produced jointly by SIGN and the British Thoracic Society (BTS) since 2003, sections of the guideline are updated biennially. The 2014 update covers all sections of the guideline except diagnosis/monitoring and asthma in adolescents and includes complete revisions of the sections on supported self-management and organisation and delivery of care, and extensive revisions to the section on non-pharmacological management of asthma.

A new section highlighting the key recommendations for implementation has also been added. It is hoped that this asthma guideline continues to serve as a basis for high quality management of both acute and chronic asthma and a stimulus for research into areas of management for which there is little evidence.

Sections of the guideline will continue to be updated on the BTS and SIGN websites on a biennial basis.

-----

The QRG content is enhanced with material from the main guideline and online resources, linked to the SIGN website. The app features keyword search, bookmarking and access to the SIGN website. New QRGs will be available as an update as they are published, building into a complete library.

Upgrade is so much better Having the short summaries automatically part of the app is so much better than having to wait for a download (often on the ward where there is no WiFi or mobile signal). Well done on the update.

Nice to have an app But more guidelines need to be added to this mobile app.
