Abstract

The overall objective of the guideline is to provide up-to-date, evidence-based recommendations for the use of narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy (NB-UVB) in adults, young people and children. The document aims to:

• offer an appraisal of all relevant literature up to 18th February 2021, focusing on any key developments

• address important, practical clinical questions relating to the primary guideline objective.

• provide guideline recommendations and if appropriate research recommendations

The guideline is presented as a detailed review with highlighted recommendations for practical use in the clinic and at home (see section 3.0), in addition to an updated Patient Information Leaflet (available on the BAD Skin Health Information website; https://www.skinhealthinfo.org.uk/a-z-conditions-treatments/).
