WIHSC PUBLISHES REPORT ON HOW NICE GUIDELINES ARE ADOPTED BY NHS WALES

November 17, 2016

WIHSC publishes today the report of research conducted this year on how Health Boards in Wales respond to NICE guidelines.

The report focuses on how the guidelines on rheumatoid arthritis have influenced services for patients with this condition. NICE has produced many sets of evidence-based guidelines on a wide variety of conditions, suggesting how services should be provided and what constitutes 'good practice’. The report describes how these particular guidelines have influenced services over the past few years, and makes some recommendations for optimal adoption in the future. The work was commissioned by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry Cymru Wales.

The report is free to download.
