CKS Updates - February 2019

During February 2019 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were published or updated in the following areas.

The majority of topics have undergone reviews and minor restructures. The Blackouts topic is new. The most significant changes are to the Diarrhoea - adult's assessment topic where new recommendations have been added to the referral section in line with recommendations on the recognition and referral of suspected cancer. The Urinary tract infection (lower) - women topic has also been updated in line with antimicrobial prescribing guidance.

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