Guidelines, Consultations and Evidence Base

The Professional Standards Committee of the Faculty is responsible for a number of activities which includes creating new or endorsing existing guidelines and responding to consultations from a number of national organisations (Government, the GMC, NICE, the British Pain Society etc.).  A major part of the production of guidance is maintaining awareness of the evidence base which underpins Pain Medicine practice.  This is available below.
