The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the United Kingdom is calling for evidence to help implement guidance to prevent vitamin D deficiency. Such evidence will help NICE develop guidance for public health officials on best practices to spread awareness and implement interventions on a community level to prevent vitamin D deficiency.

They’re looking for unpublished, commercial or other data that wouldn’t show in a database search. Such unpublished work should answer one or more of the following questions:

  1. Question 1: How effective and cost effective are interventions to increase awareness and implementation of existing guidance on vitamin D among health professionals or others working with at-risk populations? What are the implications for professional training and practice?
  2. Question 2: How effective and cost effective are interventions to increase awareness and uptake of existing guidance on vitamin D among at-risk groups (with special consideration given to those eligible for the Healthy Start scheme)?
  3. Question 3: What helps or hinders the implementation of existing guidance on vitamin D by commissioners, providers, practitioners, those working with at-risk groups and people in at-risk groups?
  4. Question 4: What local provision is made to ensure vitamin D supplements are available for different at-risk groups (including Healthy Start, prescriptions and over-the-counter sales)?

Relevant evidence must be submitted by April 30th. For further details on their call and how to submit, please visit their website athttp://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/index.jsp?action=folder&o=63157.
