NICE Guidance - October 2017

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

The Cystic fibrosis guideline covers diagnosing and managing cystic fibrosis. It specifies how to monitor the condition and manage the symptoms to improve quality of life. There are also detailed recommendations on treating the most common infections in people with cystic fibrosis.

The Child maltreatment clinical guideline covers the signs of possible child maltreatment in children and young people aged under 18 years. It aims to raise awareness and help health professionals who are not child protection specialists to identify the features of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and fabricated or induced illness.

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