NICE seeks opinion to improve clinical guidelines

Via National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence

NICE is gathering the opinions of patients and the public to help develop the ways it presents its guidance.

NICE has launched a short online questionnaire, consisting of questions that will help gauge the awareness of their clinical guidelines and experience of using them. The questionnaire is a mixture of multiple choice questions and opportunities to provide more detailed replies.

Results from the survey will help NICE improve the way evidence and recommendations are presented in its clinical guidelines.

The survey forms part of a larger study called DECIDE, which is a five-year collaborative project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme.
