During April 2017 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were updated for the following topics:
The following topics were all reviewed:
- Back pain - low (without radiculopathy)
- Cervical cancer and HPV
- Dental abscess
- Dyspepsia - proven GORD
The topics have undergone minor restructures. The most significant change is that the recommendations on primary care management and referral for Dyspepsia, including the management of severe oesophagitis, have been updated in line with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline and the lower age limit has been changed from 16 to 18 years.
Action: Clinicians who see patients with any of these conditions may find the new and updated information useful when reviewing current clinical practice.
