The YPHSIG has been invited by the RCPCH Clinical Standards Group to consult on the below clinical guidelines, technology appraisals, diagnostic assessments, public health guidances and quality standards over the next few months. You may wish to lead the YPHSIG consultation on behalf of our group or simply contribute to the discussion. There will be forthcoming consultations on:
Schizophrenia: NICE quality standard draft
Head injury (update): NICE clinical guideline – nominations for scoping workshop in mid-February 2012
Promoting physical activity for children and young people: NICE public health guidance - review proposal
School-based interventions on alcohol: NICE public health guidance - review proposal
Sickle cell acute painful episode: NICE clinical guideline - draft guideline
Smokeless tobacco: helping South Asians to stop using: NICE public health guidance - draft guidance
Bipolar disorder: Aripiprazole for the treatment and prevention: NICE technology appraisal - evidence submission
Spasticity in children and young people: NICE clinical guideline - pre-publication check
This work requires reading and commenting on draft guidance and is a chance to influence clinical guidance to reflect the health needs of young people. It counts towards Continuing Professional Development activity. If you would like to lead the YPHSIG on any of the above consultations please let me know by Thursday 16 December 2011. Forthcoming consultations are listed on the College website at www.rcpch.ac.uk/consultations - see ‘Forthcoming consultations’.
Many thanks to members for your continued involvement in these consultations. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
