Key questions on implementing the NICE cancer guidelines
This module provides a range of practical approaches to implement the NICE suspected cancer guideline NG12, including:
- Increased awareness of the key changes between the previous guideline CG27 and NG12
- Increased confidence of managing patients who do not meet the referral criteria to support clinical decision making.
- Increased awareness of the recommendations on safety netting and supporting patients through a suspected cancer referral to improve patient experience
- Increased familiarity with different approaches to improving communication between primary and secondary care.
In January Cancer Research UK commissioned a roundtable discussion with delegates from across the cancer pathway to discuss implementation of the NICE guideline for the referral and recognition of suspected cancer (NG12). The discussion aimed to identify barriers and practical tips for implementation. The key questions within this module have been distilled from this roundtable discussion.
