During February 2019 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were published or updated in the following areas.
- Child maltreatment - recognition and management
- Diarrhoea - adult's assessment
- Food allergy
- Learning disabilities
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Urinary tract infection (lower) - women
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.
