Each year the Public Involvement Programme runs a set of workshops to help patient, carer and service user organisations learn more about NICE's activities and the opportunities to participate in NICE's work.

What are masterclasses?

At each masterclass, speakers will introduce participants to the range of NICE guidance, standards and advice that we produce. Interactive exercises will enhance participants’ NICE knowledge and explore how the work we do might be relevant to their organisation. There are also opportunities for questions and discussion to help participants get the most out of the day.

How long do masterclasses last?

The classes usually last a day and refreshments are provided.

Our next masterclass

This masterclass is for patient, carer and voluntary organisations who would like to know more about how we assess interventions that aren’t medicines, and how to best engage with these areas of our work.
