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 that we received during consultation and the responses to these comments. The comments were invaluable in helping us to develop and refine the guideline. We have also produced an equality impact assessment to support the guideline.
The recommendations from this guideline have been included in the NICE Pathway on Chronic pain (primary and secondary) in over 16s: assessment of all chronic pain and management of chronic primary pain, which brings together everything we have said on chronic pain in an interactive flowchart. There is brief information about the guideline for people using services, carers and the public at ‘Information for the public’.
