Introduction to the work of NICE – workshop for voluntary and community sector organisations

 

We would like to invite you to a workshop on Tuesday 3 March at the NICE offices in Central London. The workshop will run from 9.45am until 3.45pm.

 

As you may know, NICE will be updating its guideline on increasing the uptake of HIV testing among people at higher risk of exposure. The consultation on the draft scope (which is the document which outlines what the guideline will and won’t cover) is currently open until 10 February 2015. If you wish to comment during this consultation period, please see here for further information.

 

We wanted to make sure that as many of you who are interested are able to take part in the guideline development process and supporting its implementation. We therefore hope that you will be able to accept our invitation to this workshop which has been designed for those voluntary and community sector organisations who are unfamiliar with the range of NICE products and processes or would simply like to keep up to date with new developments.

 

Please note that this workshop is not an opportunity to discuss the guideline topic specifically, rather it is a general overview of how to get involved with NICE and use our guidance for the benefit of the people that you work with. We are attaching the draft agenda, which has yet to be finalised.  However the sessions of the workshop will comprise one or more speakers, with some interactive exercises and opportunities for discussion and questions.  Tea and coffee will be available throughout the workshop and a sandwich lunch will be provided.

 

What do we want you to do?

 

Please reply to this email completing:

 

·       Table A if you, or a colleague, are able to attend the workshop, or

·       Table B if you, or a colleague, are not able to attend the workshop

 

Please reply no later than Friday 30 January 2015.

 

If you or another colleague are unable to attend the workshop but would like to speak further with the Public Involvement Programme about how your organisation can get involved in the updating of NICE’s guideline on increasing the uptake of HIV testing among people at higher risk of exposure, please email jessica.fielding@nice.org.uk – we would love to talk to you further at your convenience.
