The Royal Society of Medicine and The BMJ are bringing together a multidisciplinary faculty of experts to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Organised by the RSM and The BMJ, in collaboration with NICE, the event will review the impact that NICE has had on both the national and international healthcare landscape since launching 21 years ago.
Join us to reflect on the challenges NICE has faced along the way, the lessons that have been learned and explore the challenges that may lie ahead as we look to understand NICE’s role in the future of health.
- Understand the political climate into which NICE was launched and some of the resistance its formation faced
- Understand the impact NICE has had on both national and international healthcare
- Learn about the range of challenges NICE has faced and how the organisation has navigated them, including the use of QALYs, the economic model, battles with industry, patient involvement, conflict of interest and the production of guidelines
- Discuss some of the controversies about NICE’s decisions and stances
- Reflect on both the future direction of NICE and potential challenges ahead
