NICE Guidelines: as Featured on PubMed


The accustomed method of discovering the latest (and current) guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is to search the NICE website; for example by using the links:

  1. Types of guideline (and / or)
  2. Find guidance.

The alternative approach adopted on this page, uses PubMed to access the “true” full-text of guidelines; access to which may not sometimes be self-evident from the NICE website. Obviously, both sites have their merits, and their respective search and retrieval techniques should be seen as complementary (rather than mutually exclusive).

The NICE Guidelines
