NICE Guidance - September 2018

The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have published new or updated guidance for the month of September 2018. This month there are three guidelines that impact upon primary care.

The Chronic heart failure in adults guideline covers diagnosing and managing chronic heart failure in people aged 18 and over. It aims to improve diagnosis and treatment to increase the length and quality of life for people with heart failure.

The Preventing suicide in community and custodial settings guidelinecovers ways to reduce suicide and help people bereaved or affected by suicides. It aims to:

  • help local services work more effectively together to prevent suicide
  • identify and help people at risk
  • prevent suicide in places where it is currently more likely

The Pancreatitis guideline covers managing acute and chronic pancreatitis in children, young people and adults. It aims to improve quality of life by ensuring that people have the right treatment and follow-up, and get timely information and support after diagnosis.

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