Local point of care clinical guidelines exist in numerous formats and cover a variety of clinical information, normally created on a national and local level. They are generally available as basic web pages, PDFs or documents. Despite widespread availability and use, accessing clinical guidelines and information can be highly inefficient and restrictive. This reflective study investigates the evaluation of a clinical guidelines mobile application in the challenging area of co-design with clinicians. It aimed to answer if the selected methods of user centred design were suitable when working with limited access to users and what design recommendations can be elicited/changed by utilising user centred design (UCD) methods to gather feedback on features and functions. Specifically, this study utilised a mixed-method UCD approach and triangulation technique (Think-aloud and idea writing, screen recording and system usability scale). This culminated into the creation of 15 recommendations for developing clinical guidelines applications for mobile devices.
