CKS Updates - February 2022

During February 2022 Clinical Knowledge Summaries were published or updated in the following areas.

The Faecal incontinence in adults topic is new. The remaining topics have been reviewed and updated in keeping with current guidance with minor layout changes. The Prostate cancer topic has been updated to include amended recommendations on risk stratification and age-specific prostate-specific antigen (PSA) thresholds for referral. The Scrotal pain and swelling topic contains updated recommendations on assessment and management and a prescribing information section has been added that includes antibiotic treatment options for suspected acute epididymo-orchitis.

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