This final guideline has now been published on the NICE website. You can also find the supporting evidence, tools and resources, as well as all the stakeholder comments received during consultation and the responses to these comments. The comments were invaluable in helping NICE to develop and refine the guideline. They have also produced an equality impact assessment to support the guideline.

There is brief information about the guideline for people using services, carers and the public at ‘Information for the public’.

The final guideline includes recommendations for research. More detail can be found in the supporting evidence. Funding is available from the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) for projects addressing NICE research recommendations. NICE encourage researchers to apply for funding to generate new evidence to inform future NICE guidance.
