NICE Pathways 

NICE Pathways is an online tool that helps to visually map all current NICE guidance.

NICE Pathways are presented as topic-based flow charts and provide quick and easy access to all NICE guidance, quality standards, patient information and implementation tools.

Initially presented with an overview, they then allow the user to explore NICE recommendations in greater detail as well as ensuring access to support materials and the underpinning evidence base.

The presentation of NICE Pathways – the ‘rendering' – is not currently part of the syndication service.

Please note: NICE Pathways are not intended as complete ‘care pathways’ for a particular condition. They represent collections of all current NICE guidance available on a given health topic.
