NICE consults on dementia and stroke care

The UK's NICE has launched a consultation on its draft quality standards for the treatment of dementia and stroke

The UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has launched a consultation on its draft quality standards for the treatment of dementia and stroke.

Stakeholders, healthcare professionals and members of the public are being invited to comment on the draft quality standards, which are available on NICE's website until January 15, 2010.

NICE implementation director, Val Moore, said: "The draft NICE quality standards provide an early version of what we believe high-quality care looks like for the treatment of dementia and stroke. Once published the NICE quality standards will provide the NHS and the public with a clear aspiration, which can be used to assess existing performance and inform future service improvements.

"We therefore encourage all those groups with experience in the treatment of dementia and stroke to send in their comments via the NICE website."

The Topic Expert Groups are due to meet early next year to progress to a final set of standards. Each of the two Groups consists of 10-15 experts with relevant clinical, public health, commissioning and lay expertise in the treatment of either dementia or stroke.
