Help develop the NICE guideline on skin abscess: antimicrobial prescribing
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) produces guidance on the most effective ways to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and ill health, and provide social care support. NICE guidance is based on research evidence and takes into account the views of people working in or using relevant services, and other stakeholder groups.
NICE are currently looking for patients, unpaid carers and their advocates (usually referred to as ‘lay members’ at NICE) to join the committee developing NICE guideline on skin abscess: antimicrobial prescribing. You might also be interested in applying yourself or wish to consider encouraging others to apply. See the recruitment advert for details of what working with the committee involves, the kind of experience and knowledge They are looking for, and how to apply. Recruitment is open until 5pm on Wednesday 5th February.
We would welcome an application from those who have recent experience or knowledge of this topic and are able to reflect the views, experiences and needs of the public to ensure they are included in the development of this guideline. They need to be able to contribute effectively in a formal committee setting. NICE lay members are paid a fee to attend meetings and we cover travel and other expenses.
See the project page on the NICE website for more details about this guideline project, including key dates and relevant documents
