BMJ and Ukraine Ministry of Health announce new agreement

BMJ and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine are delighted to announce a new agreement to continue supporting learning and development for primary healthcare physicians across the country.

The 1-year agreement will provide ongoing access to BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning for 4,000 Ukrainian primary healthcare physicians, enabling them to continue to improve their knowledge and clinical decision making skills within the framework of the Ministry’s healthcare reform.

Today’s announcement builds on an existing collaboration between BMJ and the Ministry to provide Ukrainian clinicians with training and evidence-based tools to improve care, as part of a wider Clinical Decision Support Training Initiative.

It also marks the next step in Ukraine’s ambitious plans for achieving healthcare system for all, improving the use of health resources, and the quality of healthcare services.

The new agreement will involve translation of BMJ Best Practice Topics and BMJ Learning modules on diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and breast cancer.

“Continuing professional development is important,” says Mitali Wroczynski, Head of Strategic Partnerships at BMJ. “It is vital for all doctors to engage in lifelong learning so that they can improve their knowledge and skills and deliver the best possible care to their patients.”

We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Ministry to support its plans to ensure that healthcare professionals can learn and practice to the highest possible standards at every stage of their career.
