NICE

Details of NICE guidelines which may be of particular interest to BPS Members

The following NICE guidelines may be of particular interst to BPS members - the BPS is a stakeholder in many of them and has contributed to the consultation process.

The list is not comprehensive - We have tried to include NICE guidelines that will have broad application to many patients seen by pain clinicians (eg osteoarthritis, opioid-induced constipation) and also guidelines that involve participation of multidisciplinary pain clinics (eg neuromodulation). I have excluded guidelines for specific treatments for painful conditions (eg rheumatoid arthritis and intervertebral disc prolapse), although these are available through the NICE website.

I hope that by putting this on our website we will encourage more awareness of the BPS's involvement in the development of NICE guidelines and inspire BPS members to support the Society's work.

Please let us know if you think there are other NICE guidelines that should be included.
