BMJ and Ministry of Health hold joint conference on Clinical Decision Support Initiative for healthcare professionals in Azerbaijan
BMJ, one of the world’s leading medical knowledge providers, is implementing an ambitious Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Training Initiative, aimed at improving clinical outcomes in fighting diseases in Azerbaijan.
The programme provides over 2,000 healthcare professionals with evidence-based online tools, including BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning, to improve the skills and knowledge on differential diagnosis, treatment and management of both communicable and non-communicable diseases. The programme is supported by the Ministry of Health (MoH), which has also accredited BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning resources for the purpose of continuing medical education and professional development in Azerbaijan.
To celebrate the initiative, a joint conference by BMJ and MoH was held at the Public Health & Reform Center in Baku on 23rd May 2018. The event shared information about the early successes in the implementation of the CDS initiative followed by an award ceremony acknowledging BMJ champions and key supporters. The event was attended by 70 representatives from industry and government, World Bank and the Global Fund as well as health professionals from 23 medical facilities.
Head of Strategic Partnerships at BMJ, Mitali Wroczynski is delighted with the success of this important training initiative, and is grateful to the Ministry of Health, the implementation leads and BMJ Champions for making it happen. Clinicians in Azerbaijan now have access to the very best tools to develop their knowledge and skills, practice evidence-based medicine, and improve outcomes for their patients.
