The British Medical Journal (BMJ) is a global healthcare knowledge provider, with expertise in healthcare education, clinical decision support, research and publishing, and a vision of creating a healthier world by sharing knowledge and expertise to improve experiences, outcomes and value.

Within the framework of the Clinical Decision Support (CDS) initiative, the BMJ collaborates with the Ministries of Health to provide medical doctors with BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning, with online evidence-based decision support tools to improve their ability to detect, diagnose and manage patients. 

The Initiative provides clinicians and healthcare professionals with evidence-based online tools and resources, including BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning, to improve the diagnosis, treatment and management of both communicable and noncommunicable diseases. Produced by international experts, they are reviewed by Ukrainian clinicians and experts and adapted to users in country in Ukrainian language, available offline, online and via mobile devices. The programme is fully supported by the Ministry of Health and a national Working Group.

BMJ Best Practice is an online decision support tool that gives doctors fast and easy access to the latest information when making diagnosis and treatment decisions.

For registration doctors must provide their own e-mail address, their private mobile phone number, and must have an access to the Internet. Also, to connect to the resource, the access code of the institution in which the doctor works is needed. If s/he combines work in several medical institutions, it is important to remember that registration is possible ONLY ONCE (from one institution).
