How to use the BMJ Best Practice Comorbidities tool
The BMJ Best Practice Comorbidities tool prompts healthcare professionals to consider a patient’s comorbidities when accessing treatment information on an acute topic. When comorbidities are selected, a tailored patient management plan is produced instantly.
BMJ Best Practice is the only clinical decision support tool to do this. Written by leading specialists, this tool provides treatment advice based on the latest evidence and is presented in a way that’s realistic for daily practice. It emphasises the most important take-home points and, where evidence is scarce or equivocal, expert opinion is provided.
Treating the acute presentation alongside existing conditions enables healthcare professionals to quickly treat and stabilise patients with comorbidities. This improves the quality of care, and efficiencies are made through the effective management of the patient. This means better clinical outcomes, shorter hospital stays and fewer readmissions.
