Project history

Date Update

24 April 2002

 

This guidance is part of a series of cancer service guidance, which aims to provide advice on how services in the NHS should be configured to provide effective services to people with certain conditions. It is slightly different from clinical guidelines, which provide advise on the assessment and treatment of individuals with a specific condition. However the development process is very similar to that used for guidelines. See below for more information on the Institute's guideline development process.

The remit for this guidance was received from the Department of Health and the National Assembly for Wales.

The scope defines what aspects of care are covered by the guidance and to whom it applies.

Development of the guidance is underway and is taking place in two parts; part A and B. Part A covers information, communication, psychological support, symptom control, palliative care, terminal care and social support. Part B covers rehabilitation, spiritual support, complementary therapies, user involvement, support for carers and bereavement care. The Guidance Development Group meets regularly to oversee and assist the identification, review and synthesis of the evidence, the incorporation of expert consensus opinion and the translation of the evidence into recommendations for practice and audit criteria. Three versions of Part A are under preparation: full guidance, a NICE short-form of the guidance and a patient version.
