School-based interventions to prevent smoking: consultation on the evidence

NICE have published the evidence papers for the guidance they are developing on school based tobacco interventions.

There are 4 papers they are consulting on:

  • A cost effectiveness review;
  • A qualitative review;
  • An effectiveness review; and
  • An economic modelling report.

They say:

The aim of this consultation is to enable stakeholders to consider the evidence gathered and to provide the opportunity to comment, in particular on:

  • major gaps in the evidence gathered, including papers in the published literature that we have not been able to identify
  • queries around the interpretation of the evidence, both of single studies and the reviewed material as a whole
  • the applicability of the evidence and its usefulness for the development of guidance
  • issues relating to equality
  • issues relating to cost-effectiveness
