NICE Guidance - June 2010

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of June 2010.

This month there is a clinical guideline and public health guidance that have an impact on primary care. The clinical guideline details the management of physical complications arising from alcohol-use disorders in adults and young people while the public health guidance promotes strategies that could be employed to reduce alcohol related harm.

Additionally, a clinical guideline was issued late in May following the UK elections that describes the diagnosis and management of idiopathic childhood constipation.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of these guidelines. They will be a useful resource for clinicians who see children or adults and young people who are exhibiting physical complications associated with alcohol use.
