NICE calls for tailored care for complex, long term health conditions

Nice_logo   The number of people with many long-term health conditions is set to rise and physicians need to discuss both the benefits and any adverse effects of treatments with patients.

Aimed at healthcare professionals, GPs and physicians, a new NICE guideline (Multimorbidity: clinical assessment and management, NG56) sets out ways to put patients with complex health issues at the heart of decisions about their care, including how to decide between different medicines and treatments. It should also help clinicians to work with their patients to  deliver person centred care suited to their needs.

The news release can be read here and the full guideline is Multimorbidity: clinical assessment and management NICE guideline [NG56]
