Selected Bibliography for NICE GUIDELINES CG178 : Psychosis and Schizophrenia


                                             54 th, MAUDSLEY DEBATE

This House believes that NICE guideline "CG178 Psychosis and Schizophrenia in Adults" is unbiased and evidence based”.  

  • Chair: Prof Sarah Byford

  • For: Prof Sonia Johnson & Prof Steve Pilling

  • Against: Dr Mark Taylor & Prof Clive Adams

        My guess is that the nays will win the day; I certainly hope so (Tom Leonard). I applaud Mark Taylor's expose of the inadequacies of the NICE empirical investigation, Who are these people who try to mind control us?

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline (CG)178 was published in 2014. NICE guidelines occupy an important international position. We argue that CG178 overemphasises the use of cognitive-behavioural therapy for schizophrenia and those ‘at risk’ of psychosis, with recommendations that do not always reflect the evidence base. The CG178 recommendations on medications are limited
