NICE mobile app boosts access to guidance

GPs will be able to access NICE's latest advice and decisions on their smartphone after the institute launched a free app.

The NICE Guidance app, launched on Tuesday, will give clinicians offline access to all NICE guidance, including clinical guidelines and appraisals of new treatments.

It will be free to download for iPhone and Android users.

Users will also be able to search for relevant topics, bookmark sections for easy access and email sections to themselves or colleagues.

Jane Gizbert, communications director at NICE, said: '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.'

She added: 'This is 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.'
