Consultation on topic prioritization and strategic principles by NICE in England

NICE is currently updating its process for selecting topics for health technology evaluation. On March 5, 2024, NICE published a new integrated manual for topic prioritization and strategic principles and launched a consultation. This document includes the following:

  • NICE’s integrated topic prioritization manual provides an overview of the process through which NICE will identify new topics and updates for prioritization, as well as the decision-making framework that will be used by the NICE prioritization board. This will replace “NICE health technology evaluation topic selection: the manual”;
  • NICE’s strategic principles will guide the prioritization of topics related to public health, social care, and rare diseases for guidance development. They are designed to complement NICE’s existing core principles alongside the new integrated prioritization process outlined above to ensure that these topics are not overlooked.

The deadline for submitting comments is April 4, 2024.
