CKS Updates - June 2019

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

The majority of topics have undergone reviews and minor restructures. The Bowel screening topic has been updated regarding the adoption of the faecal immunochemical test (FIT). The Cellulitis - acute topic now recommends doxycycline as the antibiotic of choice in patients taking a stain who cannot take penicillin antibiotics. The Developmental rheumatology in children is a new topic and the Premenstrual syndrome topic has been updated to clarify the definition of and information on the severity of premenstrual syndrome.

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