Tuesday 7 November 2017 saw the very first Guidelines Live event held at the Congress Centre in London.

MGP’s long established brands: Guidelines and Guidelines in Practice played host to over 120 healthcare professionals in central London who enjoyed an educational day to keep them up to date with clinical guidance and best practice on guideline implementation.

Chaired by Dr Matthew Fay, the day consisted of six expert speakers delivering seven sessions across clinical areas most popular on both Guidelines.co.uk and GuidelinesinPractice.co.uk. Speaking of the diverse range of topic areas, in his opening speech Dr Fay likened the day to a day in general practice and told the audience ‘we have a complex surgery of patients ahead of us today’.

Highlights of Guidelines Live 2017 included:

  • The men’s health session on implementing the British Society for Sexual Medicine (BSSM) androgen guideline
  • The dermatology​ session on the use and overuse of antibiotics in dermatology
  • The cardiovascular​ session on palpitations from a primary care perspective.
