Summary

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has produced this guide on the effective use of NICE guidance into day-to-day practice. It helps in assessing how well each organisation is implementing NICE’s recommendations, and how to move forwards.

The main section headings comprise:

  1. Introduction.
  2. Benefits of implementing NICE guidance.
  3. What your organisation needs to have in place.
  4. What your organisation needs to do.
  5. Assessing services against NICE guidance or quality standards.
