The British Association of Dermatologists produces a range of clinical guidelines using a process that is accredited by NICE. All our guidelines are published in the British Journal of Dermatology and are free to access.
NICE has renewed the accreditation for the process used by the British Association of Dermatologists to produce clinical guidelines. The accreditation recognises the stringent methodology that we employ in producing our clinical guidelines.
The renewed accreditation is valid until 31st May 2026 and applies to guidance produced using the processes described in ‘Updated guidance for writing a British Association of Dermatologists clinical guideline – the adoption of the GRADE methodology 2016’.
The original accreditation term began on 12th May 2010 and retrospectively covered guidelines that were accepted for publication from September 2008.
The accreditation means that future BAD guidelines will not only need to follow the accredited process manual strictly, but also fulfil all 25 criteria set by NICE to maintain the BAD’s status as an accredited guidance producer. Accredited guidelines feature the NICE accreditation logo.
