Implementing NICE guidance: the Sheffield Ten-Stage Implementation Model
Abstract:The Clinical Audit and Effectiveness Unit at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has devised a Ten-Stage Model to implement and monitor National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance. Over three years this model has been associated with a marked increase in audited compliance with NICE guidance, and has received national recognition as an example of best practice from which the rest of the NHS can learn. This article describes how the model works in practice and how a web-based version facilitates implementation and clinical engagement.
