Fractures

Fractures: Diagnosis, management and follow up of fractures

Status: In progress
Publication date: April 2016
Wave: 0
Process: CG
Notes:

NICE is developing five pieces of guidance relating to trauma, Each piece of guidance will focus on a different aspect of trauma care.

NICE has commissioned the National Clinical Guideline Centre (NCGC) to develop the trauma guidance. The fractures, complex fractures, spinal injury assessment and major trauma guidelines will start development approximately 6 months before the development of the Trauma service delivery guideline. As a result of these guidelines being developed concurrently, the coordination of the development of these guidelines will be slightly different to our usual process.

The amendments to the process for developing these trauma guidelines will help maximise stakeholder engagement, ensure that the gaps or overlaps among the different guidance topics are addressed and that the final guidance produced is complementary and consistent.

  • Injuries, accidents and wounds

Project history

Date Update
18 November 2013

The scope defines what aspects of care are covered by the guideline and to whom it applies. Comments that were made by stakeholders during the consultation on the scope can be seen in the scope consultation table. The Guideline Development Group (GDG) oversees the development process.

The NCCs may make a focussed call for evidence on specific clinical questions or subquestions, after it has done initial searches. It will be able to make a call at any point during development of the guideline, and stakeholders will usually be given 4 weeks to respond. The NCC will approach all registered stakeholders for this evidence. The NCC may not issue any calls for evidence for a guideline if the Guideline Development Group (GDG) feels it is not necessary. In addition, the NCCs will accept relevant confidential data for consideration by the GDG.  The Health Economic plan, review questions and search strategies will be available on the website 5 weeks prior to consultation.

7 September The remit was received from the Department of Health and the Welsh Government in August 2012.
