New for 2007 - The NICE shared learning award

Win 1000 to support implementation of NICE guidance in your organisation

In order to celebrate the very best of the content on its Shared Learning Database, NICE has established a "Shared Learning Award" (SLA). The SLA will replace the posters that have traditionally been exhibited at the NICE annual conference.

How the Shared Learning Award will work:

  • 12 submissions from the Shared Learning Database will be selected as short listed entrants for the Shared Learning Award:
  • NICE will produce a poster for each shortlisted entrant for display at the NICE conference.
  • From the 12 shortlisted entries, four finalists will be selected to give a 10-15 minute presentation on their entry at the conference.
  • One of the four will be selected as the overall award winner

What's on offer:

  • Each of the 12 shortlisted entrants will be receive one free place at the NICE conference plus 25% off a second delegate place
  • The four finalists will be offered one additional free place (instead of 25% off a second delegate place) 
  • The overall award winner will receive 1000 to be spent on NICE implementation within their organisation and the three runners up will win 100.

How to submit your entry

Please use the online form when submitting your example - and please make sure you have completed all the relevant sections, including contact and data protection details.

Incomplete submissions and those failing to meet the above criteria will be returned. They can be resubmitted once the appropriate information has been completed.

If you need help completing the online form, contact our Shared Learning Coordinator.

Each submitted example needs to pass our quality assurance process before being added to the database, to ensure that all examples appearing in the database meet a minimum quality standard

From all submissions entered, twelve short listed entrants for the Shared Learning Award will be selected from the shared learning database and NICE will work with the entrants to produce a poster for each that will be displayed at the NICE annual conference.

Criteria for entry into Shared Learning Award

In order for your entry to be one of the twelve shortlisted we will be looking for evidence following a range of criteria:

   How clear are the project's objectives?

   How has the quality of management and leadership been demonstrated?

   What evidence is there of collaborative working?

   What were the outcomes of the project and how were they measured? 

   What are the key learning points and how transferable are they to other services/organisations?

Out of the twelve shortlisted entries four finalists will then be selected to give a 10-15 minute presentation on their entry at the conference. One of the four will be selected as the overall award winner and will receive 1,000 to support NICE guidance implementation projects within their organisation.

Criteria for entry into the final of the Shared Learning Award

In order for your entry to be one of the four finalists we will be looking for further evidence following a range of criteria:

   What challenges were encountered in implementing the project and how were they overcome?

   How innovative was the project?

   To what extent has the project demonstrated good value for money?

   To what extent were service users involved in the project?

   To what extent are claims regarding outcomes and benefits supported by proof?

The four finalists will be offered two free places at the NICE conference and each of the 8 remaining short listed entrants will receive one free place plus 25% off a second delegate place.

A 1-5 scoring criteria will be used to shortlist (5 being the highest score and 1 being the lowest). The submissions will be assessed and the relevant number of submissions with the highest score will pass on to the next round.

All entries must be submitted by 30 September 2007.

Other Awards

Submissions to our Shared Learning database can also be entered into the NICE-sponsored category of either the Health Service Journal (HSJ) or Guidelines in Practice good practice awards. Please check award criteria on the relevant website before entering - either HSJ or Guidelines in Practice
