The adoption team is responsible for identifying ways to overcome potential barriers to the implementation of NICE guidance.
We do this by working closely with health and social care organisations that are commissioning, implementing or using a product that has been recommended by a technology appraisal, or medical technologies or diagnostics guidance.
Adoption support resources
The adoption team develops resources to support the adoption of selected NICE guidance. The topics selected are those identified as having potential adoption
The adoption team works directly with health and social care organisations to produce adoption support resources containing practical solutions and advice that enable NHS organisations to promote the sustainable uptake of NICE guidance. They describe the experiences of health and social care organisations that have already put a product or technology into routine practice.
Each resource should be used in conjunction with the relevant NICE guidance.
