Clinical Knowledge Summaries

The Clinical Knowledge Summaries (CKS) are a reliable online
source of evidence-based information and practical
‘know how’ about the common conditions managed in primary
and first-contact care.

To enhance the service the first in a series of CKS audio podcasts on ‘hot’
clinical issues have been developed and are available at
http://www.cks.library.nhs.uk/knowledgeplus/podcasts.

Featured podcasts cover:
• Diagnosis, management and follow-up of acute anaphylaxis
• Reducing antibiotic prescribing for otitis media with the use of
deferred prescriptions
• Referral for breast cancer and promoting breast awareness
• Missed contraceptive pills
• Managing red eye
• Evidence for the use of varenicline in people who want to stop smoking


New training materials have been produced and are
available at
http://www.cks.library.nhs.uk/about.

The training resources are helpful if you
want to find out more about CKS, or to teach others about the service and
consist of:
• A user guide for the website available as a video, PowerPoint and PDF
document
• An overview of CKS as a PowerPoint presentation or podcast
• Training scenarios
