Public health resources on NICE Evidence Search


NICE Evidence Search covers a wide range of information of interest to those working to improve the health of the population. This includes guidance, systematic reviews of research, implementation tools and practical examples from people working in the field. A ‘public health’ filter and public health specific topic pages have been developed to assist your search. But please also take a look at the clinical topics and resources as many of these also include information of relevance to public health.
