Refresh your knowledge of national guidance on picking up undiagnosed conditions

MIMS Learning has updated its content to help you keep on top of what's relevant to you in national guidance.

National recommendations on picking up undiagnosed familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) have changed, and GPs are advised to identify more cases of hypertension and female genital mutilation.

NICE has recommended GPs should search patient records for adults with undiagnosed FH, in an update to clinical guideline CG71 in November 2017. Dr Martin Duerden’s updated article on FH outlines the latest evidence and what to do differently in your practice.

NICE is also conducting a full review of its CG127 guideline on managing hypertension in adults. Dr Raj Thakkar’s article, updated in 2018, highlights how to find undiagnosed hypertension in your practice population and how to treat frail elderly patients at risk of falls.

All healthcare professionals must report cases of female genital mutilation in girls and young women under 18 to the police. Dr Mais Al-Hity and Dr Louise Clarke explain what you need to know, in an updated article that includes a checklist for healthcare professionals published in 2017.

Don’t forget you can earn CPD credits and keep yourself abreast of national clinical guidelines with all MIMS Learning guidance articles. MIMS Learning features 550+ clinical education modules tailored to GPs’ learning needs, worth over 400 CPD credits, and a CPD organiser integrated with the Clarity & RCGP Appraisal Toolkit for GPs.
