Community engagement (consultation on synopsis of the evidence)
Community engagement and development approaches to health: consultation on the synopsis of the evidence
The Department of health asked the institute to undertake: ‘an assessment of community engagement and community development approaches to health improvement, including the collaborative methodology and community champions’.
All registered stakeholders for NICE public health programme guidance on Community Engagement and Development are invited to comment on the draft summary of evidence to inform the development of the guidance.
This is the synopsis of the evidence collated by NICE so far. This will be used by the Institute’s Programme Development group (PDG) on community engagement and development as part of the basis for making its recommendations. The synopsis comprises summaries of a series of reviews plus a summary of an economic appraisal.
The aim of this process is to enable stakeholders to consider the evidence gathered during this first phase and to give you the opportunity to comment, in particular on:
- major gaps in the evidence gathered, including papers in published literature that we have not been able to identify
- queries around interpretations both of single studies and the reviewed materials as a whole.
The consultation on this evidence runs for 4 weeks from 30 May until 27 June 2007. During this period, registered stakeholders are also invited to submit relevant additional evidence for consideration by the PDG. In order for NICE to be able to produce guidance in a timely fashion, material should be:
- relevant to the questions set out in the scope document
- currently not included in the evidence summary reports
- provided as hard copy or as the electronic link to a freely accessible version of the complete document.
Please note that materials must be supplied by 27th June 2007 (9am) to our email address: email@example.com and that unfortunately, due to time constraints, we are unable to engage further in further discussions about material included or excluded at this stage.
We are also interested in any evaluative materials you may have relating particularly to your own area of activity that is publicly available, including information relating to implementation issues.
