Further explanation of the methodology used can be found in the quality standards process guide on the NICE website.
The documents below contain recommendations from NICE guidance or other NICE‑accredited recommendations that were used by the Quality Standards Advisory Committee to develop the quality standard statements and measures.

National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (2009). Adding insult to injury.
Department of Health (2004). National service framework for renal services. Chronic kidney disease, acute renal failure and end of life care.
