NPC legacy site
Note: the therapeutics information on this page has not been reviewed since May 2012, when the NPC became the NICE Medicines and Prescribing Centre (MPC).
Important new evidence is highlighted in the MPC’s current awareness bulletins (incorporating medicines evidence commentaries) and also in NICE evidence updates and Eyes on Evidence. These are searchable via www.evidence.nhs.uk
We have prepared some background information on PDAs, which we suggest you read before using our PDAs for the first time.
Download an introduction to the ideas behind PDAs.
Download suggestions on how to use PDAs.
Download supporting information about relative and absolute risk, and the evidence-base for the use of PDAs.
We are always grateful for feedback, indeed without it most of this work would not have been possible. For feedback and enquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
