BMJ Best Practice available to all community pharmacists and technicians

January 14, 2021

BMJ Best Practice is a clinical decision support tool that provides healthcare professionals quick and easy access to the latest evidence-based information to assist with making diagnosis, understanding prognosis, considering treatment information and advising on preventative options. The information is updated daily and is linked to international guidelines and UK clinical information sources such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the British National Formulary (BNF) and the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC).

BMJ Best Practice additionally provides:

  • Detailed drug information on dosing, availability, formulations, side effects and contraindications;
  • Clinicians with additional tools to support patients by providing information and discussing treatment options using the tool’s accredited patient leaflets;
  • Pharmacists and technicians with another way to stay current and support their professional development; and
  • An additional way to record reading with automatic Continuing Professional Development (CPD) tracking which can therefore further support revalidation and appraisals.

Access to the BMJ Best Practice is provided by Health Education England (HEE) via an OpenAthens login. Community pharmacists and pharmacy technicians involved in providing NHS services in England can obtain an NHS OpenAthens account via an online form on the NICE website.
