NICE Evidence Updates: latest news

June 17th 2014

A new NICE Evidence Update focusing on service user experience in adult mental health was published earlier this month. With help from Bazian’s Information Services team, the Evidence Update Advisory Group assessed 3088 articles, finding eight suitable for inclusion in the published Evidence Update, which is designed to provide health and social care providers with additonal evidence alongside existing guidance on specific topics. Although several key points are highlighted in the latest report, none are listed as having a potential impact on existing guidance.

The publication of the latest Evidence Update follows on from Bazian’s involvement in another, assessing evidence relating to the treatment of autism in adults, which was published in May and saw 10 new pieces of evidence highlighted from a search of 4799 articles.

Since spring 2011, Bazian's IS team has worked on dozens of Evidence Updates for NICE. Evidence Updates are designed to help health and social care professionals keep up to date with new research, while reducing the time and resources spent searching for the latest evidence. Further Evidence Updates are on the works for several topics, including Crohn’s disease and infection control.

More information on NICE Evidence Updates, as well as links to all published and upcoming updates, can be found on the NICE Evidence Updates home page, while a more detailed description of Bazian's Information Specialist services can be found here.
