Concise guidelines provide short guidance on the best ways to treat and manage a range of conditions and illnesses. The guidelines are short and accessible so that physicians can respond quickly to these conditions, which may be fairly common but outside their own specialist area. They are published in Clinical Medicine and are free to all to download.
The Concise Guideline Series are evidence-based guidelines for clinical management. These guidelines provide clear and concise recommendations for best practice, and practical tools with which to implement them.
