‘Improving outcomes in head and neck cancers: Evidence Update May 2012’ https://www.evidence.nhs.uk/nhs-evidence-content/evidence-updates focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE cancer services guidance ‘Improving outcomes in head and neck cancers’ (2004).
‘Familial breast cancer: Evidence Update May 2012’ (https://www.evidence.nhs.uk/nhs-evidence-content/evidence-updates) focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline 41 ‘The classification and care of women at risk of familial breast cancer in primary, secondary and tertiary care’ (2006).
In producing the Evidence Updates almost 4,000 pieces of evidence were identified. An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of subject experts, has reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.
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.
