FAQs – What is the NICE Guideline for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Menopause?
In November 2015, NICE published the first ever Guideline on Menopause following a two-year scoping and development process with an independent development group consisting of Health Professionals and patient representatives. This is a big step forward for patients suffering from peri-menopausal symptoms, menopause and post-menopausal symptoms including those who have had a sudden onset menopause due to cancer treatment.
The draft guideline was made available to registered stakeholders who included pharmaceutical companies, patient representative groups, charities, members of the public and smaller niche-product companies such as The Yes Yes Company. We were allowed to comment on the draft and some amendments were made as a result of this stakeholder involvement.
You can find the final complete guideline here http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng23.
