SIGN Guidelines in Psychiatry

Scotland has developed a different approach to NICE, preferring to produce reviews only on the clinical evidence and not on cost-effectiveness or economic data. The reviews are also more tailored to the scottish environment. This also enables Scotland to focus on topis it believes to be important. The reviews themselves are high quality systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
