During November 2020 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were updated in the following areas.
- Dupuytren's disease
- Giant cell arteritis
- Macular degeneration - age-related
- Osgood-Schlatter disease
- Support for adult carers
All of the topics have been reviewed and updated in keeping with current NICE guidance with minor layout changes. The Menopause topic now includes a lower age range of 35 to include the diagnosis and management of suspected premature ovarian insufficiency. Additional options for non-hormonal therapy for the management of vasomotor symptoms are included and further information for women with hypothyroidism has been added to the section on managing co-morbidities.
Action: Clinicians who see patients with any of these conditions may find the new and updated information useful when reviewing current clinical practice.
