The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) sets the standards for high quality healthcare and encourages healthy living. Note that NICE guidelines are developed in the UK for their specific health settings and as such, some health service recommendations may not translate to the Australian context. NICE guidelines are however based on robust international research evidence which can help inform Australian based practitioners in their assessment and treatment practices.
This guideline, 'Autism spectrum disorder in adults: diagnosis and management', makes recommendations on the identification, treatment and recommended interventions around autism diagnosed in adults aged 18 years and older, in primary and secondary care.
