September NICE Guidance

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of September.

There are two new Clinical Guidelines that impact on primary care. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (PDF) covers the diagnosis and management of ADHD in children, young people and adults. It discusses care, treatment and support that can be offered by health services and family members.

Chronic kidney disease (PDF) covers the early identification and management of adults with chronic kidney disease. It discusses diagnosis, treatment and referral to specialist renal services. Recommendations are also made about management of diabetes, blood pressure and cardiovascular risk in people with chronic kidney disease.

Action: Primary care clinicians should be aware of these new guidelines. They provide useful information regarding diagnosis, management, drug treatment and referral for patients with these conditions.
