Consultations on diabetes NICE guidelines open
NICE has begun its two-week consultations about updates to its guidelines covering type 1, type 2, diabetes in children and management of feet in diabetes later this month.
Four separate public consultations opened on Thursday, 25 April, 2019, and will run until Wednesday, 8 May, 2019. The Surveillance proposal consultation document has been published.
This 2019 surveillance review has considered four NICE guidelines on the theme of diabetes and all guidelines will be having a separate stakeholder consultation, including:
- Type 2 diabetes in adults: management NICE guideline NG28 (December 2015)
- Type 1 diabetes in adults: diagnosis and management NICE guideline NG17 (August 2015)
- Diabetes (type 1 and type 2) in children and young people: diagnosis and management NICE guideline NG18 (August 2015)
- Diabetic foot problems: prevention and management NICE guideline NG19 (August 2015)
NICE has published the surveillance decision for each of the guidelines. Based on previous NICE surveillance stages, the decision is likely to fall into one of the following categories:
- not to update the guideline
- a full update
- a partial update
In the case of a partial update, the proposed scope will be set out.
The surveillance stage is a pivotal time for a NICE guideline update – inclusion or exclusion of areas for update at this stage will shape the entire process. In the case of a partial update decision or a decision not to update, provision of evidence demonstrating the need for update within a particular clinical area is vital as it will help NICE ensure the scope includes all relevant areas that need updating.
Stakeholders may comment on the proposals for one or all the guidelines, according to their knowledge and expertise of the topic areas. To register as a stakeholder, click here.
