During February 2018 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were updated in the following areas.
The following topics were all reviewed:
- Alcohol - problem drinking
- Bites - human and animal
- Breast screening
- Erectile dysfunction
- Malaria Prophylaxis
- Pubic lice
The majority of topics have undergone reviews and minor restructures.
The most significant changes are to the Balanitis and Breast Screening topics where the background, diagnosis and management sections have been expanded or amended. The Bites - human and animal has seen the antibiotic choices simplified and doses have been added. The Obesity topic has been updated in line with NICE guidance.
Action: Clinicians who see patients with any of these conditions may find the new and updated information useful when reviewing current clinical practice.
