CKS Updates - March 2021

During March 2021 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were published or updated in the following areas.

The Platelets - abnormal counts and cancer topic is new. The other topics have been reviewed and updated in keeping with current guidance with minor layout changes. The Contraception - progestogen-only methods topic has been updated in line with Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) guidance and references to some retired QOF indicators have been removed. The Itch - widespread topic has been updated to recommend the use of non-sedating oral antihistamines first line unless there is a history of troublesome nocturnal itch. As such new sections on cetirizine, loratadine and fexofenadine have been added to the section on Prescribing information.

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