NICE launches online resource for general practice – 21 February 2011

“NICE has launched a new section of its website, designed to help staff in general practice get the most out of evidence and guidance provided by NICE.

Specifically created to support the use of evidence-based medicine and public health practice, this online resource offers solutions to enable the uptake of NICE and other national guidance in primary care, and contains a section on how NICE can help GP consortia.

Written with help from GPs, practice managers and practice nurses, it will prove a valuable tool to help to deliver high quality primary care and to improve patient outcomes.

Users can quickly access relevant guidance and information, advice to ensure the practice team is up-to-date, and to further their continuing professional development.

It also includes a range of useful information for general practitioners, such as a quick at-a-glance list of the top 10 NICE guidelines for general practice and summaries of the key points for general practice as NICE publishes new guidance each month.

These pages bring together all the resources that are available from NICE to support the emerging GP commissioning consortia, including links to the NICE quality standards, access to the best evidence to support commissioning, through NHS Evidence, and a range of practical tools and support.

The website has four key sections: NICE for my patients, Using NICE guidance in my practice, My NICE resources, and NICE for GP consortia. Each section is easy to access and read, providing high quality targeted information.”
