During June 2017 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were updated in the following areas.
The following topics were all reviewed:
- Adverse drug reactions
- Molluscum contagiosum
- Scrotal swellings
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Whooping cough
The topics have undergone reviews and minor restructures. The most significant change is to the Adverse drug reactions topic which clarifies the recommendations for adverse drug reactions (ADRs) reporting in children. Previously it was recommended that all suspected reactions were reported but feedback suggested that this advice was impractical and deterred reporting and as such it is now recommended that reporting should occur in the same way as for adults.
Action: Clinicians who see patients with any of these conditions may find the new and updated information useful when reviewing current clinical practice.
