Sunlight exposure – risks and benefits (NG34)
This NICE guideline covers how to communicate the risks and benefits of natural sunlight exposure (specifically, the ultraviolet rays UVA and UVB) to help people understand why they may need to modify their behaviour to reduce their risk of skin cancer and vitamin D deficiency.
The recommendations included in this guideline include:
- At-risk groups
- Communicating consistent balanced messages
- Mass media campaigns to raise awareness of the risks and benefits
- Local strategies to raise awareness among at-risk groups
