NICE Guidance - May 2013

The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published new guidance for the month of May 2013. This month there are two clinical guidelines that impact upon primary care.

The Social anxiety disorder guideline offers evidence-based advice on the recognition, assessment and treatment of social anxiety disorder in children and young people (from school age to 17 years) and adults (aged 18 years and older). Cognitive behavioural therapy is recommended as the first line treatment intervention with pharmacological interventions reserved for adults who decline cognitive behavioural therapy.

The Feverish illness in children guideline is an update to original guidance issued in May 2007. This version contains new and updated recommendations relating to the assessment and initial management in children younger than 5 years with no obvious cause of feverish illness.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this month's new guidance and implement any necessary changes to practice.
