Home Care - NICE Consultation
Posted on: November 14 2017, 10:53 am

NICE are currently conducting a consultation on Home care: delivering personal care and practical support to older people living in their own homes.

NICE are proposing "to not update the guideline on home care at this time".

This proposal is outlined on the NICE website https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/NG21/consultation/html-content where you will find all relevant documents.

You can see the proposal itself here https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/NG21/documents/surveillance-review-proposal and you can download a comments form from the same page.

BHIVA have sent in a comment to NICE about this. The deadline for comments is Monday 20th November (apologies for the tight deadline, this reached me only yesterday afternoon).

Essentially comment re "survey data + anecdotal evidence of stigmatising attitudes and discrimination experienced by PLWHIV from staff providing care at home... potential to have a significant impact on quality of care and quality of life for the person concerned... poorly informed or inaccurate beliefs about transmission risk might represent a particular barrier to good care for PLWHIV... suggestion for care staff to receive training around stigma/discrimination + training around negligible risk of transmission for HIV"
