Practical Support Tools - Rationale Routine tools provide practical support at key steps of the implementation process described in the How to implement NICE guidance guide Bespoke tools address specific needs identified by stakeholders during our support planning process All tools offer a consistent starting point and have been designed and developed in consultation with users
The key benefits You can trust them as they have been quality assured by NICE They save you time Every little helps …….

Discussion How have you used the different types of support tools over the last year? How do you (or could you) cascade relevant tools to front-line clinical staff? How do you (or could you) evaluate the impact of our support?
Case study: Depression in Adults with Physical Health Problems Healthcare Practitioners should be alert to possible depression (particularly in those with a past history of depression or a chronic physical illness with associated functional impairment) and consider asking patients they suspect may have depression two questions, specifically: –During the last month, have you often been bothered by feeling down, depressed or hopeless? –During the last month, have you often been bothered by having little interest or pleasure in doing things?
