NICE Evidence Services
What are NICE Evidence Services?
NICE Evidence Services are a suite of services that provide internet access to high quality authoritative evidence and best practice. The services cover health, social care and public health evidence. Evidence Services aim to help professionals make better and quicker evidence based decisions. NICE Evidence Services consists of the following 6 resources:
- Evidence Search which provides free open access to a unique index of selected and authoritative health and social care evidence-based information.
- Healthcare Database Advanced Search (HDAS), which provides access to an extensive set of journals and bibliographic databases. These are purchased by NICE on behalf of the NHS.
- Clinical Knowledge Summaries (CKS) which provide primary care practitioners with access to evidence-based guidance on over 300 key conditions presenting in primary care.
- BNF microsite which provides open access to BNF content across the UK.
- UK DUETS, a database of Evidence Uncertainties which provides research funders and researchers access to the ‘known unknowns' in the evidence base.
- Bulletins, Alerts and Evidence Awareness service which helps busy professionals keep up to date with important new evidence.
Who are NICE Evidence Services for?
NICE Evidence Services are for everyone working in health and social care who makes decisions about treatments, interventions or the use of resources. While NICE Evidence Services are designed primarily for professionals and practitioners, patients and the wider public are also able to search most of the content.
