CKS Updates - October 2021

During October 2021 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were updated in the following areas.

All topics have been reviewed and updated in keeping with current guidance with minor layout changes. The Candida - female genital topic has updated to remove the terms 'uncomplicated' and 'complicated' as they are no longer recommended in the BASHH national guideline. The Immunizations - seasonal influenza topic has been update to include the recommendation that children aged over 2 years with a history of severe anaphylaxis to egg who have previously required intensive care management in hospital can be offered the egg-free cell-based quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIVc) as an alternative to referral to a specialist for immunisation in hospital. And the Tiredness/fatigue in adults topic has seen an update to the recommended blood tests, referral timescales, the range of supportive measures which should be considered and the follow up recommended in primary care.

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