Enhance your critical appraisal skills while working in a multidisciplinary team with a shared focus on improving patient care

SIGN Council is the policy making body for SIGN with overall responsibility for methodology and editorial policy. 

One RPS SIGN Council member is nominated by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. The RPS SIGN Council member represents RPS and pharmacy, and this involves consulting widely with other specialist pharmacy groups. Members determine the overall direction of SIGN's development and play a key role in shaping the SIGN guideline programme. Some are also actively involved in aspects of the guideline development process and all provide input into the prioritisation of topics for guideline development groups. 

The RPS SIGN Council member has a Deputy who is someone in the early part of their careers and they will have an opportunity to attend SIGN Council meetings. The RPS SIGN Council member will mentor and support the RPS early careers representative. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an early careers pharmacist to contribute and influence at a national level while contributing to their own professional development.
