NICE Quality Standards Team: Notification of topic engagement dates – Children’s attachment
Tuesday 10 November 2015

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) would like to inform about the topic engagement exercise for the children’s attachment quality standard.

The topic engagement exercise for the children’s attachment quality standard will run from Friday 15th January to Friday 29th January 2016.

The NICE quality standards team develops a topic overview for each quality standard, based on the referral. The overview describes core elements of the standard, such as the population and condition or services to be covered, and lists the key source guidance that will be used to underpin the quality statements. At publication of the topic overview, NICE requests written submissions from QSAC specialist committee members,  registered stakeholders and individuals asking them to:

• identify key areas for quality improvement
• highlight any national or routine indicators and performance measures not listed in the overview
• provide examples of published information on current practice (such as, reports of variation in care or service provision, evaluations of compliance with source guidance, or patient, carer or service user experience) to support the identified areas for quality improvement
• express interest in being an endorsing organisation.

Further details will be sent at the start of the engagement period.
