Make the most of NICE resources to help implement the COPD Quality Standard

NICE have produced a range of resources to help commissioners and clinical teams to improve respiratory care and implement the NICE COPD Quality Standard

NICE have produced their own Commissioning Guide as a resource to assist commissioners, clinicians and managers to commission high quality and evidence based services across England.

This guide for commissioners highlights any recommendations supporting cases for disinvestment or decommissioning by identifying treatments and interventions that do not add value, enabling commissioners to release resources or generate savings where appropriate.

NICE have also produced a series of pathways covering the management of COPD in primary and secondary care. These include:

  • A COPD overview pathway
  • Diagnosing COPD
  • Managing stable COPD
  • Treating stable COPD
  • Inhaled therapy in COPD
  • Symptoms and conditions in stable COPD
  • Managing exacerbations of COPD
These are available as an online resource that pulls together these 7 pathways.
