It seems to get harder with every passing year, but it is always a pleasure to judge the NICE shared learning awards.

Our shortlist reflects the range of entries we received from health organisations, local authorities and voluntary organisations. They cover a broad range of topics including oral care in care homes, smoking cessation activities and heart failure care.

All of the shortlisted entries will present posters at the NICE conference in May with the four finalists giving stage presentation of their work:

We’ll be taking a closer look at the above four finalists over the coming months so make sure you keep an eye on our website for the details. The competition winner will be announced at the conference.

Last year’s prize was scooped by Somerset Gastroenterology Flexible Healthcare Team for their work on empowering patients and GPs to manage irritable bowel syndrome.
