  • setting the standard for quality: quality standard update

In his presentation Nick states: 

"NICE quality standards are concise sets of prioritised statements designed to drive measurable quality improvements within a particular area of health or care.They are derived from the best available evidence such as NICE guidance and other evidence sources accredited by NICE. They are developed independently by NICE, in collaboration with health and social care professionals, their partners and service users."
