Consultation Documents:

Points to consider in the consultation:

  • What are the highest priority areas for interventions to change the public’s behaviour in order to delay the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistant diseases?
  • What is the most appropriate way to approach the health economic analysis?
  • Do you think this scope could be changed to better promote equality of opportunity relating to age, disability, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, religion and belief, sexual orientation or socio-economic status? In answering this question, please include details of:
    • Which particular parts of the scope you think affect equality of opportunity
    • Why and how you think equality of opportunity is affected
  • Please note that there is another guideline being developed on antimicrobial resistance: Antimicrobial stewardship. You may wish to look at the areas covered in this guideline before commenting on the draft scope for Antimicrobial resistance: changing risk-related behaviours.

The Institute is unable to accept:

  • More than one response per stakeholder organisation
  • Comments received after the consultation deadline
  • Comments that are not on the correct stakeholder comments form
  • Confidential information or other material that you would not wish to be made public
  • Comments forms with attachments such as research articles, letters or leaflets. If comments forms do have attachments they will be returned without being read. If the stakeholder resubmits the form without attachments, it must be by the consultation deadline 

What will happen to your comments:

  • All comments (with the exception of personal, individual comments and late comments) will be sent to the project team at the end of the consultation
  • Comments from registered stakeholders will be formally responded to by the NICE project team and posted on the NICE website after the final scope is published.
  • No action will be taken upon receipt of personal, individual comments and late comments.
  • Please note: The Institute reserves the right to summarise and edit comments received during consultations, or not to publish them at all, where in the reasonable opinion of the Institute, the comments are voluminous, publication would be unlawful or publication would be otherwise inappropriate.
