NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care
The NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care uses NICE’s methods and processes to develop social care guidance for NICE.
The first four guidelines developed by the Centre for NICE have been published. These are:
- Home care: delivering personal care and practical support to older people living in their own homes
- Older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions
- Transition between inpatient hospital settings and community care or home settings for adults with social care needs
- Transition between inpatient mental health settings and community and care home settings: August 2016
- Transition from children’s to adults’ services for young people using health or social care services
Guidelines on the following topics are currently in development:
- Care and support of older people with learning disabilities: October 2017
- Child abuse and neglect: September 2017
- Intermediate care including reablement: July 2017
- Service model for people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour: September 2017
- Service user and carer experience: January 2018
The NCCSC sets up guideline committees to look at the evidence available, comment on the draft guidance and make recommendations. The committees also advise on how best to share the guidance and support implementation.
Committee members include people who use, manage, deliver and commission care and support services.
