BMJ Best Practice

BMJ Best Practice is a point of care tool which aims to assist health professionals in making decisions about treatment and diagnosis. It uses an evidence based, patient focused approach. BMJ Best Practice links out to PubMed records so you can access the full text where Cardiff University has access and information about drugs and dosages are linked via the BNF. (You can also download the BNF app freely – please see separate post here http://blogs.cardiff.ac.uk/blslibraries/2017/10/24/new-improved-bnf-bnfc-app/

BMJ Best Practice can be used to:

  • Get a second opinion about prevention, diagnosis, treatment or prognosis
  • Identify UK or international guidelines
  • Identify evidence-based synopses
  • Develop professionally – notes and links can be saved to a personal portfolio
  • Identify images to be used for educational purposes
  • There are also links to national and international guidelines and patient information leaflets.
