An Evidence Update on ‘acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding’ has been published.
NICE Evidence Updates help to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence and keep health and social care professionals up to date with research. While Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance and do not provide formal recommendations, they do highlight new evidence that health and social care professionals may wish to consider alongside current guidance.
The new Evidence Update focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline 141 ‘Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding: management’.
An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of topic experts, reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.
