NICE keeps guidance on complementary therapies for supportive and palliative care in adults

Following NICE’s consultation on its proposed update to the guideline for Supportive and Palliative Care in Adults we are pleased to report that NICE has taken into account the very large number of well-considered responses made by CNHC and a wide range of organisations across the sector. 

Rather than remove complementary therapies, NICE has decided to keep the original guideline (CSG4) in place and develop a separate guideline for End of Life Care. This means that existing guidance on complementary therapies remains in place.
