Smartphone website for local guidelines including pneumonia (HNELHD)

The  Quality Use of Medicines smartphone-enabled website has been updated to include changes to hospital acquired pneumonia guidelines. With this site, you are only three clicks away from a treatment recommendation!  See below for the range of guidelines available. Note that whilst Therapeutic Guidelines: Antibiotic remains the main resource, HNE guidelines, where approved, take precedence- they are generally more restrictive around use of broader spectrum agents, critical for reducing multi-resistant organism and C. difficile prevalence.

    1. Hi Rebecca, just bookmark the URL for the page and it will link to the site. It is not an App as such! Just an html5 website that is adapted to a phone screen.
