EDF Guidelines App
The EDF is proud to promote the activities of the European Centre for Guidelines Development (EuroGuiDerm of the EDF) in collaboration with Prof Alexander Nast from the Division of Evidence-Based Medicine, Department of Dermatology, Charité University, Berlin. The Centre will also be advised and supported by renowned experts in the field. The project aims to foster high-quality guidelines through harmonized methodologies that ensure alignment with current gold standards, under a systemized structure and with a continuous update process. The governance includes a Board of Directors, with EDF having a majority status. The project is already sponsored by Pharma companies/national societies and by an initial fund provided by EDF. Additional support is expected to be provided by international societies.
The EDF Guidelines APP offers a useful tool that helps dermatologists to select the most appropriate treatment for individual patients. The APP contains the PSORIASIS, ACNE and LICHENOID DERMATOSES guidelines – two of which are large, evidence-based guidelines. Updates with additional guidelines are under way, e.g. for 2020: Dermatitis herpetiformis.
