The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has announced it aims to relaunch its international unit.
The decision has been taken as NICE encounter an increasing volume of enquiries from organisations based outside the UK. NICE International is a not-for-profit, fee-for-service division, which:
“provides support in developing systems to:
- Improve health and social care evidence-based decision making
- Embed health technology assessment to allocate resources in a cost effective, transparent and equitable way
- Improve the quality of care and reduce variation of access”
NICE Chief Executive Sir Andrew Dillon said:
“We’re delighted to be relaunching NICE International so that we can share what we’ve learnt over the last 20 years to help other international health and care systems optimise their use of evidence-based practice.”
