'Into practice' guide
The Into practice guide helps and supports local health and social care provider organisations in implementing NICE guidance and using NICE quality standards to improve the quality of care they provide. The guide is a source of practical support to health and social care professionals and managers to enable them to provide care in line with NICE recommendations. In the guide there are suggestions for practical solutions that can be put in place to improve the process of embedding NICE guidance into day-to-day practice.
The guide covers topics such as the best ways to assess the extent to which your organisation is implementing NICE's recommendations - and how to address any gaps if you find out it is not. It includes helpful tips, links to other resources and case studies from our shared learning examples describing how other people have used NICE guidance and quality standards in similar situations to yours.
If you want to ensure your organisation has a robust process for implementing NICE guidance and using NICE quality standards, and want to demonstrate this to others, including regulators and commissioners, then this guide is a must-read.

We have also published How to change practice which provides practical advice on how to encourage health and social care professionals and managers to understands, identify and overcome barriers to change, enabling them to change practice in line with the latest guidance
