A costing statement has been produced by NICE to provide an implementation tool to estimate the financial impact to the NHS of implementing the patient safety solutions pilot - prevention of ventilator associated pneumonia.
The costing statement focuses on the financial impact of the recommendations that require most change in resources to implement in England. The report has been prepared in consultation with the Patient Safety Advisory Committee, and other clinicians working in this area and has been approved for publication by the Institute. It should be noted that the cost and activity assessments in the report are estimates based on a number of assumptions. These assessments provide an indication of the likely impact of the principal recommendations and are not absolute figures.
To support implementation a slide set and audit criteria have also been produced.
The Institute would welcome feedback from users to inform the development of future templates. Please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
