As a member of the guideline committee for the NICE/SCIE guidance ‘Social care of older people with multiple long-term conditions’ I welcome today’s publication of the guidance. Publication marks the end of a lengthy and thorough process where as a committee member I used both my personal experiences as a former carer to my father, and my professional understanding of the issues facing older people and their families, to help inform this guidance.
You can read the NICE Press Release for the guidance here: http://www.nice.org.uk/news/article/integrated-care-critically-important-for-older-people-with-social-care-needs-and-multiple-long-term-conditions
