NICE are looking for your help
NICE is the National Institute of Clinical Excellence. The Institute are developing a patient decision aid (PDA) about chronic primary pain and Pain Concern has been asked to help check that it is useful and useable.
PDAs help people take part in decision making about their care. They provide information on the options, but they do not recommend one option over another. Instead, they help people think about what matters most to them.
NICE are inviting the following people to help shape it:
- people with personal experience of facing decisions about their chronic primary pain, or who are supporting or have supported a friend or relative facing those decisions.
- healthcare professionals who talk to people with chronic primary pain about their options.
NICE will send out the draft patient decision aid and survey link on 12 September 2023 and would need responses by close of play 3 October 2023.
Please note that the opportunity to sign up and review to offer feedback is now closed, with those already signed up having until 3 October 2023 to respond.
When the patient decision aid is finalised it will be available from NICE.
