NICE: Persistent Pain Guideline Committee

08 November 2017

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is inviting people with a personal experience of persistent (chronic) pain, to join a voluntary committee and assist the development of new NICE Guidelines around persistent pain.

The committee is looking for a ‘lay member’, referring to any person with experience of using health or care services, a relative of someone, or unpaid carer of someone with chronic pain such as having arthritis, to advise and help give important insight to the committee.

The guideline committee looks at evidence, and develops recommendations for best practice in care for a condition, under outlined circumstances. It is an invaluable aspect of affecting clinical and care excellence, taking place over 13 day-long committee meetings in 2018 in London, over the course of two years.

If you think you have what it takes and want to gain fascinating experience and offer your instrumental input, have a look at the NICE website, the person specification and submit your application by 5pm on Wednesday 22 November 2017.
