Hi List

You may have heard the discussions today on the radio/TV on asthma. Attached
is the draft NICE guidelines on the Clinical guideline Methods, evidence and
recommendations - January 2015. 

 

The aim of this guideline is to determine the most clinical and
cost-effective way to effectively diagnose people with asthma and determine
the most effective monitoring strategy to ensure optimum asthma control. The
scope of this guideline covers the diagnosis and monitoring of asthma and
excludes other aspects of management. This is because there is evidence that
incorrect diagnosis is a significant problem. This guideline covers infants
and young children 0-5 years old, children 5-16 years old and adults over
the age of 16 who are being investigated for suspected asthma, or who have
been diagnosed with asthma and are having their condition monitored. The
guideline applies to all primary, secondary and community care settings in
which NHS-funded care is provided for people with asthma.

 

There is a section on occupational asthma.
