CKS Updates - April 2022

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

All of these topics have been reviewed and updated in keeping with current guidance with minor layout changes. The Headache - tension-type topic has been updated with recommendations on management in primary care to include the option of physiotherapy, regular exercise, cognitive behavioural therapy, and/or relaxation techniques for some people. Also, the QIPP section on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) has been removed. The Trigeminal neuralgia topic has been updated with the addition of a differential diagnosis section, minor changes based on drug literature and an update to the supporting evidence for the topic.

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