Distributed by ProQuest to medical schools, VA hospitals, and teaching hospitals in the United States and Canada, BMJ Best Practice gives clinicians and students fast and easy access to reliable, up-to-date information when making diagnosis and treatment decisions.
Best Practice is a completely new concept for information delivered at the point of care. In a single source the latest research evidence is combined with guidelines and expert opinion – presented in a step-by-step approach – covering prevention, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.
Regularly updated, Best Practice provides a second opinion in an instant, without the need for checking multiple resources. Its unique patient-focused approach represents a major new advancement in information delivery at the point of care. In fact, Best Practice was rated among the three best point of care tools by an independent study published in the January 2016 issue of the Journal of Medical Information Research.
Unlike other providers, BMJ Best Practice is action-orientated and structured around the patient consultation.
BMJ Best Practice has been shown in independent comparisons to deliver faster answers to diagnostic clinical questions. Its ‘Assessment’ topics, sections dedicated to ‘Diagnostic’ criteria, and ‘Exam & Tests’, support healthcare professionals during differential diagnosis and decisions throughout the diagnostic workup.
Highly renowned systematic reviews from BMJ Clinical Evidence are incorporated throughout BMJ Best Practice. They are also found in the separate ‘Evidence’ section.
Content is regularly updated and draws on the latest evidence-based research to offer step-by-step guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention.
Updates are made to multiple topics every day to reflect the best available evidence. Guidelines, evidence, and drug alerts are reviewed routinely and contextualized so clinicians can digest this content in seconds.
