During May 2018 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were updated in the following areas.

The following topics were all reviewed:

The majority of topics have undergone reviews and minor restructures.

The most significant changes are to the Fungal skin infection - scalp and Smoking cessation topics. The Fungal skin infection - scalp topic has had complications and prognosis nodes added to the background information section and a differential diagnosis node has been added to the diagnosis section. The Smoking cessation topic has had information added on very brief advice on smoking cessation for adults and pregnant women and recommendations regarding e-cigarettes have been added.

Action: Clinicians who see patients with any of these conditions may find the new and updated information useful when reviewing current clinical practice.
