The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) sets the standards for high quality healthcare and encourages healthy living. Note that NICE guidelines and pathways 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 and pathways are however based on robust international research evidence which can help inform Australian based practitioners in their assessment and treatment practices.
This guideline, 'Generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder in adults: management', covers the care and treatment of people aged 18 and over with generalised anxiety disorder (chronic anxiety) or panic disorder (with or without agoraphobia or panic attacks).
