A new NICE Evidence Update on Induction of labour has been published, (click here for the Induction of labour July 2013 PDF).
NICE Evidence Updates help to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence, and keep health and social care professionals up-to-date with new research. While Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance and do not provide formal recommendations, they do highlight new evidence that health and social care professionals may wish to consider alongside current guidance.
The new Evidence Update focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline Clinical Guideline 70 ‘Induction of labour’ (July 2008).
An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of topic experts, reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.
