  NICE guidance in the UK helps health care professionals deliver the best possible care based on the best available evidence. In April 2013, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence will take on an expanded role to cover adults’ and childrens’ social care. Though it will still be known as NICE, the organization will change its name to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

This lunch seminar will give company executives the opportunity to learn more about the growing role of NICE and participate in a discussion with the organization’s current and future chairs. The session will feature a presentation followed by Q&A. Topics covered will include:

• how NICE evaluates evidence
• the impact of NICE in the adoption of innovative products across the NHS
• how NICE’s role will evolve in the future

There is no charge to attend, but registration is required and places are limited. Representatives from UK Trade & Investment (the commercial arm of the British government) will also be on hand to answer questions and discuss opportunities available to US companies in the UK.
