• CNHC participates in second roundtable meeting with NICE Deputy Chief Executive

On 30 May 2017 CNHC was represented at the second roundtable meeting with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Deputy Chief Executive Professor Gillian Leng, following the first such meeting in January 2017. This was a useful discussion at which NICE’s Director for Centre Guidelines provided details about what NICE looks for as evidence when developing or reviewing NICE guidelines.

This was another very productive and constructive meeting and CNHC appreciates the steps NICE is taking to enter into dialogue with the complementary healthcare sector, facilitated by the Research Council for Complementary Medicine (RCCM).

You can see details of the first roundtable meeting in CNHC’s February 2017 news update.

• How to get involved in research

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) relies on research evidence when deciding what to include or exclude from its recommendations. If we want complementary health care to gain wider recognition then we need more research. As individual practitioners it is possible to support work in this area by getting involved with the Research Council for Complementary Medicine (RCCM).

• NHS Employers shine a light on Accredited Registers

NHS Employers, the organisation that works on behalf of leaders and HR professionals in the NHS, has updated its website to include information about Accredited Registers, stating that being on an Accredited Register:  ‘ … allows individuals to demonstrate their personal commitment to their work area, and enables them to be a part a professional community that strives for high standards and safety.’

The website sets out the background to the Accredited Registers programme and links to a Top Tips page which suggests how employers can use the registers when recruiting. Tips include making sure that recruiting managers are signposted to the Accredited Registers and that details are included in job descriptions and person specifications for relevant roles.

CNHC has been approved as the holder of an Accredited Register since 2013.
