European Centre for Guidelines Development

The EDF is proud to announce the launch of the European Centre for Guidelines Development 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 will include a Board of Directors, with EDF having a majority status. The project is already sponsored by Pharma companies and by an initial fund provided by EDF. Additional support is expected to be provided by national and international societies. A Guideline App for psoriasis is already available, while one for acne will be ready in time for the 2019 EDF Annual Meeting in Montreux.
