The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of July 2010.
This month there is a clinical guideline and public health guidance that have an impact on primary care. The clinical guideline details the care of adults with, or at risk of, delirium in hospital and in long-term residential care or a nursing home. The public health guidance reviews dietary interventions and physical activity interventions for weight management before, during and after pregnancy.
Action: Clinicians should be aware of these guidelines. They will be a useful resource for clinicians who care for patients in residential care or women of child-bearing age.
