For the first time, doctors, nurses and other users of NICE guidance will be able to access recommendations from NICE wherever they are through NICE’s new, official app.
The app will provide offline access to all of NICE’s guidance products, including clinical guidelines, public health guidance, technology appraisals, interventional procedures guidance, medical technology and diagnostics guidance.
Users will also be able to bookmark sections for easy access, and email sections to themselves or colleagues. More than 760 pieces of NICE guidance are contained, such as clinical guidelines on COPD, hypertension and stroke, and the app is automatically updated whenever access to the internet is available.
The Guidance app marks the first in a series of proposed app developments from NICE, which will eventually cover medicines and prescribing information, NICE Pathways and other NICE products.
