Project history

Date Update
24 December 2003 The remit was received from the Department of Health and the Welsh Assembly Government in October 2003 as part of the Institute's 9th wave work programme.
28 June 2005 In February 2005, the Institute consulted on the proposal that its guidance on vinorelbine for the treatment of advanced breast cancer (TAG no.54), its guidance on capecitabine for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (TAG no.62) and its guidance on trastuzumab for advanced breast cancer (TAG no.34) should all be updated as part of work on an upcoming NICE breast cancer guideline. In May 2005, following consultation, the Institute decided to proceed with this proposal. For more information, see 'Review Decision'.
12 January 2006 The draft scopes are out for consultation with stakeholders. The scopes define what aspects of care the guideline will cover and to whom it will apply. If you wish to comment, you need to do so via one of the registered stakeholder organisations listed above, by the deadline shown.
15 February 2006 Consultation on the draft scope is complete and the scope is being modified in the light of comments received. When completed it will be posted on the website. It will define what aspects of care the guideline will cover and to whom it will apply.
