Process and methods
About this guide
This manual sets out the process for deciding how topics are identified, selected and routed for NICE guidance developed by the Centre for Health Technology Evaluation (CHTE). This includes diagnostics, highly specialised technologies, interventional procedures, medical technologies and technology appraisal guidance.
It is beyond the scope of this manual to consider how topics are identified and selected for NICE guidelines or evidence summaries because separate topic selection processes apply for these.
