NICE is developing five pieces of guidance relating to trauma, Each piece of guidance will focus on a different aspect of trauma care.
NICE has commissioned the National Clinical Guideline Centre (NCGC) to develop the trauma guidance. The fractures, complex fractures, spinal injury assessment and major trauma guidelines will start development approximately 6 months before the development of the Trauma service delivery guideline. As a result of these guidelines being developed concurrently, the coordination of the development of these guidelines will be slightly different to our usual process.
The amendments to the process for developing these trauma guidelines will help maximise stakeholder engagement, ensure that the gaps or overlaps among the different guidance topics are addressed and that the final guidance produced is complementary and consistent.
This page provides more detail on Trauma service delivery. Please follow the links above to view details of the other pieces of guidance.
