New online infographic posters summarising the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance relevant to allied health professionals are now available online. Produced by the Institute of Osteopathy and endorsed by NICE, these easy to use resources provide a quick reference guide to current NICE guidance which can be printed and displayed in a clinical setting and support CPD.
There are currently three topics available; osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and spondyloarthritis, with plans to develop others in the near future.
The posters translate the NICE guidance into an easy to follow visual format to aid health professionals in primary care to identify and assess for the conditions and provide recommended pathways for care and management.
Matthew Rogers, Professional Development Manager at the Institute of Osteopathy and fellow of NICE, has been leading the project: “As a clinician I am acutely aware of the demands on health professionals to keep up to date with current guidance. As part of my fellowship with NICE I was keen to develop resources that would assist clinicians more easily embed the guidance into practice.”
The infographics are available to download for free from www.iosteopathy.org/for-osteopaths/clinical-guidelines.
