About the shared learning examples

These show how NICE guidance and standards have been put into practice by a range of health, local government and social care organisations.

Every year the best examples are recognised at the Shared Learning Awards. 

Each example must:

  • highlight learning that could be useful to others
  • be written in easy to understand English, free from jargon
  • have clear objectives, including an explanation of what was happening before the project, why it was needed and how it was implemented
  • outline any barriers the organisation faced when implementing the project and the methods used to overcome these
  • outline the effect the change had on service performance and outcomes through an evaluation process
  • declare any third party sponsorship.

We check that the examples are in line with our recommendations and quality statements. The examples are written by the submitting organisation and shouldn't be interpreted as formal endorsement by NICE of the approach taken.
