I am pleased to inform you that Lung cancer: Evidence Update November 2012 and Peritoneal dialysis: Evidence Update November 2012 have been published.
NICE Evidence Updates help to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence, and keep health and social care professionals up-to-date with new research. While Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance and do not provide formal recommendations, they do highlight new evidence that health and social care professionals may wish to consider alongside current guidance.
The new Evidence Updates focus on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline 121 ‘The diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer’ (2011) and A summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline 125 ‘Peritoneal dialysis in the treatment of stage 5 chronic kidney disease’ (2011).
An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of topic experts, reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.
Your help in disseminating Lung cancer: Evidence Update November 2012 and/or Peritoneal dialysis: Evidence Update November 2012 through your bulletins, e-communications and website would be much appreciated.
We would also welcome your feedback on the Evidence Update, what you like about it and how you think it could be improved. You can send your comments through to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Director of Evidence Resources, NICE
