Practical support tools published

In 2008/09 NICE continued to develop a range of materials to support implementation.

Commissioning guides

In 2008/09 NICE published 25 new or updated commissioning guides. These are topic-specific, web-based resources that provide support for the local implementation of NICE clinical guidelines through commissioning, and are underpinned by NICE clinical guidelines.

Uptake reports

We published ten implementation and uptake reports to assess the level of compliance with guidance across the NHS.

Guidance-specific tools

We published guidance specific tools for all new guidance. These include costing tools, slide sets and audit tools. The costing tools help organisations to assess the financial implications of implementing NICE guidance and we provide an Excel spreadsheet that can be used to estimate local costs and savings.

Generic implementation tools

We updated our generic implementation tools, which are designed to help organisations keep informed about developments. A forward planner alerts users to forthcoming NICE guidance, and a NICE e-alert system keeps people in touch with the latest news on guidance development.

Informing patients and the public

We worked with the Healthcare Commission to help patients and the public in England and Wales by publishing 'Accessing treatment recommended by NICE'. We produced two documents to help local authorities put NICE guidance into practice.

Many patient, carer and voluntary organisations are actively promoting and supporting the implementation of NICE guidance. Their activities range from awareness-raising campaigns and promotional activities through to providing direct funding to support implementation and training and support to health professionals. We keep a collection of examples of these activities that is updated regularly and available through our website.
