New NHS Evidence Update Published

The latest NHS Evidence Update has been published
Strategies to prevent unintentional injuries among children and young people aged under 15 (February 2013)

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 Update focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE public health guidance 29 ‘Strategies to prevent unintentional injuries among children and young people aged under 15’ (2010).
An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of topic experts, reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.

A full list or recent Evidence Updates is available on the NHS Evidence website
