The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of May 2010.
This month there is one clinical guideline that has an impact on primary care. The management of lower urinary tract symptoms in men (QRG) gives clear recommendations on assessing, monitoring and treating lower urinary tract symptoms. The guideline covers:
- Management of acute and chronic retention
- Conservative, pharmacological and surgical treatment of voiding symptoms
- Conservative, pharmacological and surgical treatment of storage symptoms
Action: Clinicians should be aware of these guidelines. They will be a useful resource for clinicians who see men with urinary symptoms.
