NICE guidelines are evidence-based recommendations for health and care in England. They set out the care and services suitable for most people with a specific condition or need, and people in particular circumstances or settings. Experts from the NHS, social care, local authorities and others in the public, private and voluntary sectors work with people who use health and care services, and representatives of communities affected by the guideline, to develop recommendations for good practice.
ACPOPC are registered as professional stakeholders in a number of NICE guidelines. Professional stakeholders are national organisations that represent the people working in health and social care who provide the services described in the guideline. This ensures that we are kept informed about any changes, updates or reviews of relevant guidelines.
NICE guidelines that are currently in development can be found here
On any current guidelines you can check if ACPOPC are registered as stakeholders. If there are guidelines that you believe we should be involved in but we are not on the list, please contact us and we will be happy to look into this.
We really encourage members to take part in the NICE feedback process. We work hard to raise the profile of physiotherapy within oncology and palliative care and can only shape future guidelines by being a part of their review. As a committee we do not necessarily have expertise on every topic covered by NICE, therefore if you have opinions on any guidelines currently in development please do get in touch with us.
