Project history

Date Update
18 November 2013 The draft guideline is out for consultation with stakeholders. If you wish to comment, you need to do so via one of the registered stakeholder organisations listed, by the deadline shown.
27 January 2012 Development of the clinical guideline is under way and is being led by the National Collaborating Centre. The Guideline Development Group meets regularly to oversee and assist the identification, review and synthesis of the evidence, the incorporation of expert consensus opinion and the translation of the evidence into recommendations for practice and audit criteria. Two versions of the guideline are under preparation: a full guideline and a NICE short-form guideline.  Please see timescales above for dates of consultation with stakeholders.
14 January 2012 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. 
13 January 2012

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.

 

30 November 2011 Consultation on the draft scope is complete and the scope is being modified in the light of comments received. When completed it will be posted on the website. It will define what aspects of care the guideline will cover and to whom it will apply. The National Collaborating Centre and the Institute are in the process of agreeing details of the workplan including how the development will progress, the membership of the Guideline Development Group and timescales.   
20 September 2011

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has commissioned the National Clinical Guidelines Centre to produce a clinical guideline on Pressure Ulcer Management.  This will replace the Pressure Ulcer Management guideline published by NICE in September 2005 and also the Pressure Relieving Devices guideline published by NICE in October 2003.  A new scope will be produced for this guideline.
