Abstract

Post-traumatic stress disorder : Evidence Update December 2013

Evidence Updates provide a summary of selected new evidence published since the literature search was last conducted for the accredited guidance they relate to. They reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence. Evidence Updates highlight key points from the new evidence and provide a commentary describing its strengths and weaknesses. They also indicate whether the new evidence may have a potential impact on current guidance. For contextual information, this Evidence Update should be read in conjunction with the relevant guidance:

 The management of PTSD in adults and children in primary and secondary care, NICE clinical guideline 26 (2005)

Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance and do not provide formal practice recommendations.
