Updated NICE guidance for type 2 diabetes: what do you need to know?

In this episode of the PJ Pod, we explore the main changes and implications for practice brought about by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence update to the ‘Type 2 diabetes in adults: management’ guideline.

On 31 March 2022, NICE provided the first substantive update to its ‘Type 2 diabetes in adults: management’ guideline since 2015. With an estimated 4.4 million people living with type 2 diabetes in the UK, it is vital that pharmacists across sectors are aware of these changes to ensure that they provide patients with the most appropriate care.

In this episode of the PJ Pod, Caitlin Killen, assistant clinical editor, talks through changes to the guidance, including any new recommendations or clarifications with the help of two experts.

Many thanks to Michelle Lam, pharmacy team leader for education and training at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and Sallianne Kavanagh, an advanced clinical pharmacist at Sheffield Teaching Hospital and clinical lecturer at the University of Huddersfield, for their expertise.

This episode was produced by Geoff Marsh.
