NICE pathways

To support the implementation of the NICE Quality Standards for chronic kidney disease a “nice” pathway approach to the implementation guidance and quality standards has been produced.

It is just a simple way to access the standards and the key recommendations of NICE Clinical Guideline 73 on chronic kidney disease as well as providing links for patients and the public to information about CKD, drug treatments and even surgery. Wouldn’t it be great if it could link into GP systems and even provide the opportunity for local audit?

Further work is now starting to link the CKD Quality Standards into the commissioning outcomes framework and commissioning guidance that is being developed to strengthen implementation and drive quality improvement forward.
