A Safe Space for Engagement: Stories from the NICE front line

 
Wolfson Guest Lecture by Sir Andrew Dillon, CEO, National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

12:30 - 2:30

Abstract Determining the value of health interventions involves exercising scientific and social value judgements about the relevance and significance of the evidence for their use. However, the interpretation of the evidence and the development of recommendations on health prevention or clinical practice is fraught with uncertainty, often complex and frequently controversial. The means for deciding on the optimal use of new forms of practice require an environment in which sometimes competing ambitions, perspectives and values can be explored and resolved. NICE has developed an approach to creating a space for its advisory committees in which diversity of opinion is respected, debate and challenge are encouraged, and conflict managed, to achieve credible and robust guidance.
