NICE Guidance - April 2017

The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have published new or updated guidance for the month of April 2017. This month there are two guidelines that impact upon primary care.

The Irritable bowel syndrome in adults clinical guideline covers diagnosing and managing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in people aged 18 and over. It has been updated in line with more recent guidance on recognition and referral for suspected cancer.

The Alcohol-use disorders clinical guideline covers care for adults and young people with physical health problems that are completely or partly caused by an alcohol-use disorder. It has been updated after an evidence review regarding corticosteroid treatment for people with severe alcohol-related hepatitis.

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