Understanding NICE Social Care Guidelines: Webinar

07 September 2015
National Institure of Health and Care Excellence

Understanding NICE Social Care Guidelines: what do they mean in practice? Find out more about developing guidelines for the sector at our webinar.



24 September, 12-1pm, online

NICE guidelines are an important mechanism for ensuring practice is grounded in evidence. With a long track record of producing guidelines for health, NICE has expanded its responsibility to include social care. The guidelines  go through a robust development process to produce evidence-based recommendations on ‘what works’, to support the commissioning, design and provision of consistently high-quality Children’s and Adults’ Services.

It is important that social care colleagues are aware of the forthcoming NICE Social Care Guidelines and Quality Standards, and how they fit into existing inspection frameworks such as CQC and Ofsted.

But did you also know that if you work in social care, you can be involved in the development of new guidance to support the sector?

As part of our work with the National Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC), which is responsible for developing the NICE Social Care Guidelines, we are running a free webinar for colleagues across the social care sector to help you understand what the guidelines mean for your work, and how you can get involved in the selection and development of topics. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the current consultation on what guidance is needed and participate in the development of guidelines to ensure they reflect the needs of the sector.

This webinar is open to those working in Adults’ Services.
