The NICE Guideline Development Group for ‘Learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges’ met for the final time last week. The guidelines are the first that NICE have completed for people with learning disabilities. The final touches are currently being made to these in response to 917 comments received from stakeholders over the last few months. The guidelines will then go to the printers later this week to be formally launched in May of this year.
The group was chaired by Prof Steve Pilling (UCL) and Prof Glyn Murphy (Tizard) who commented that “the experience had been very interesting”. They wish to thank all of the group and the NICE staff involved for all their hard work.
