Interventional procedures programme guides
NICE's Interventional Procedures Programme assesses the safety and efficacy of (mainly) new procedures that are used for diagnosis or treatment that involve incision, puncture, entry into a body cavity or the use of ionising, electromagnetic or acoustic energy.
The methods guide describes the principles and methods used to assess interventional procedures. The methods are designed to ensure that robust guidance for the NHS is developed in an open, transparent and timely way that allows appropriate input from consultees and other stakeholders. This guide is intended to be complementary to the Interventional Procedures Programme manual.
The process guide describes how NICE produces its guidance on interventional procedures. The process is designed to ensure that robust guidance is developed for the NHS in an open, transparent and timely way, allowing appropriate input from consultees and other stakeholders. This guide updates the Interventional Procedures programme manual (September 2004) and is intended to be complementary to the methods guide.
