Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
This evidence-based clinical guideline endorsed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) presents guidance on physical, psychological and service-level interventions for healthcare staff on how to work with people who misuse opioids to significantly improve their treatment and care, and to deliver detoxification safely and effectively. Of the estimated 4 million people in the UK who use illicit drugs each year, approximately 50,000 misuse opioids (such as heroin, opium, morphine, codeine, and methadone). Opioid misuse presents a considerable health risk and can lead to significant social problems. The NICE guideline is an important tool in helping people to overcome their drug problem.
It provides an overview of drug misuse and opioid detoxification and covers assessment and testing, pharmacological and physical interventions used in detoxification, psychosocial interventions to support detoxification, and the settings in which the treatment can take place. The book contains experiences by people who have been dependent on opioids, and there is also advice for family members and carers of people with a drug problem.
NICE Mental Health Guidelines
These guidelines from NICE set out clear recommendations, based on the best available evidence, for health care professionals on how to work with and implement physical, psychological and service-level interventions for people with various mental health conditions.
The book contains the full guidelines that cannot be obtained in print anywhere else. It brings together all of the evidence that led to the recommendations made, detailed explanations of the methodology behind their preparation, plus an overview of the condition covering detection, diagnosis and assessment, and the full range of treatment and care approaches.
The accompanying free CD-ROM contains all the data used as evidence, including:
- Included and excluded studies.
- Profile tables that summarise both the quality of the evidence and the results of the evidence synthesis.
- All meta-analytical data, presented as forest plots.
- Detailed information about how to use and interpret forest plots.
