13 Adoption (implementation) support for social care guidance

The aim of NICE adoption support is to encourage and promote the uptake of NICE guidance. Priorities identified by the Guidance Development Group (GDG), recommendations identified as having significant resource implications or resulting in a change in practice, and information from stakeholder consultation help determine the focus of adoption support work for social care guidance.

Support may include the provision of practical tools and a range of activities to promote uptake. Tailored tools may need developing for social care services users, particularly given that some of them may commission their own care, either independently or through budgets.

Adoption tools are produced by the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC) working alongside the implementation programme at NICE. Further details are available on the NICE website.
