New Guidance – Implementation Advice on Antibiotic Prophylaxis

The Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) has recently published Implementation Advice on Antibiotic Prophylaxis Against Infective Endocarditis.

This has been developed to facilitate the implementation of NICE Clinical Guideline 64 Prophylaxis against infective endocarditis. The advice aims to support the dental team to manage the routine dental care of patients at increased risk of infective endocarditis. It emphasises the importance of including the patient in discussions about their care and provides information about identifying those increased risk patients who may require special consideration for antibiotic prophylaxis/non-routine management.
