When Does NICE Recommend the Use of Health Technologies Within a Programme of Evidence Development? A Systematic Review of NICE Guidance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is growing interest internationally in linking reimbursement decisions with recommendations for further research. In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) can issue guidance to approve the routine use of a health intervention, reject routine use or recommend use within a research programme. These latter recommendations have restricted use to 'only in research' (OIR) or have recommended further research alongside routine use ('approval with research' or AWR). However, it is not currently clear when such recommendations are likely to be made.
