NICE to update AF diagnosis and care guidelines
This article was originally published in Clinica
The UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has commissioned an update of its 2006 clinical guideline on the management of atrial fibrillation (AF). The guideline covers the tests that should be used to diagnose AF, the treatment patients can expect to be offered according to the type of AF they have and if they go on to have a stroke. NICE has posted on its website (www.nice.org.uk) the guidance development process and stakeholder registration documents. The intended completion date is June 2014; other scoping and consultation dates have yet to be confirmed.
