New Evidence Updates from NHS Evidence

April 25, 2012 at 11:14 am Leave a comment

From NICE…

NHS Evidence – a service provided by NICE, is producing Evidence Updates to help health and social care professionals keepup-to-date with new research, and support them in making evidence-based decisions in a focused and time-efficient manner.

While Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance they do highlight new evidence that might generate a future change in practice.

The latest Evidence Update ‘Depression in Adults: Evidence Update April 2012’ focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline 91 ‘Depression in adults with a chronic physical health problem: treatment and management’ (2009).

By producing Evidence Updates, NHS Evidence seeks to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence and to inform guidance developers of new evidence in their field. 

 In producing the Evidence Update, more than 6,400 pieces of evidence were searched, of which 29have been chosen for publication. An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of subject experts, has reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.

Dr Anna Higgitt, Consultant Psychiatrist, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust said: The results of this Evidence Update clearly do add weight to the previous guidance. However, importantly, they also highlight the need for continued research, for example in relation to the stepped care model.”

 Your help in disseminating ‘Depression in Adults: Evidence Update April 2012’
