October NICE Guidance

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

There are two guidelines that may impact on primary care, a public health intervention looking at Mental wellbeing in older people (QRG) and a Clinical Guideline providing prevention and treatment advice for Surgical site infections (QRG).

The former guidance provides advice for occupational therapists led interventions to improve life satisfaction, optimism and self-esteem in people who have physical, mental and/or social needs.

The latter guidance offers advice risk minimisation and treatment of surgical site infections. Primary care clinicians may find this document useful when advising patients prior to invasive procedures.

Action: Primary care clinicians should be aware of these new guidelines. They may provide useful advice for patients.
