Effective interventions with occupational function in mind


Health professionals have a particular role in helping patients to manage their condition so that they regain or retain occupational function.  The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has developed clinical guidelines and public health guidance which include medical and non-medical interventions for both common and rare conditions.  These interventions are based on the best available research evidence and each includes practical strategies, tools and information to ensure that these interventions are implemented effectively.
