SIGN@30: Adapt or Die? – Clinical Guidelines and the Infodemic

Guidelines in an infodemic – does it matter where recommendations come from as long as they are evidence-based?

At a time when artificial intelligence (AI) is dominating the headlines, costs continue to rise and healthcare systems aim to harness more output from limited resources, how can SIGN respond to these challenges and what role can you play to shape this?

We invite hospital doctors, GPs, pharmacists, nurses, allied healthcare professionals, early careers practitioners and all those with an interest in evidence-based medicine to join us for presentations, interactive workshops and a debate on the present state and future vision of clinical guidelines in Scotland.

Our keynote speakers will bring expert perspectives from Scotland and beyond while you will gain practical skills in guideline development and explore how digital technologies can shape the future of guidelines. You will also explore how evidence can deliver value-based and sustainable healthcare under the Realistic Medicine approach.

  • Opening address – Professor Linda Bauld OBE 
  • New approaches to guideline development – harnessing the work of others and avoiding duplication – Dr Miloslav Kluga​r
  • Getting your message across – information and misinformation –  Dr Amir Qaseem

SIGN is 30 in 2023, based within the Evidence Directorate of NHS Healthcare Improvement Scotland.  There will be a drinks reception after the conference for all to celebrate and plan for the future.

Event Delivery:
