The launch of BMJ’s Clinical Decision Support Initiative in Kazakhstan

BMJ, one of the world’s leading medical knowledge providers, is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH) of Kazakhstan to implement its Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Training Initiative, a three-year programme aimed at improving detection, diagnosis and management of  infectious diseases in Kazakhstan.

The main strength of any health system is the knowledge of its healthcare providers. Health systems around the world fall behind because proven information doesn’t reach frontline providers fast enough. BMJ’s initiative will build the capacities of Kazakh doctors and strengthen the national health system.  

The initiative provides Kazakh doctors with BMJ’s evidence-based tools, BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning.  Doctors will benefit from real-time access to the resources, in both Russian and English.  

To celebrate the signing of the three-year agreement between BMJ and MoH, a launch event was held at the Kazkah Hall of the Jumbaktas Hotel in Nur-Sultan on July 11th at 10.00.

Dr Lyazat Aktayeva, Vice Minister of Health of Kazakhstan opened the conference. The event was attended by Ambassadors of the United Kingdom and the United States, representatives of the government of the United States, the management of BMJ, other international organizations, as well as representatives of medical organizations, research institutes, national centers and medical universities of Kazakhstan.

BMJ Director of Strategic Partnerships, Ashley McKimm, said: “We are delighted that the MoH, is partnering with us on this important training initiative, and we look forward to sharing our expertise with the medical workforce. The agreement will provide doctors in Kazakhstan with our very best award-winning tools to develop their knowledge and skills, practice evidence-based medicine, and improve outcomes for their patients.”

Vice Minister of Health, Dr  Lyazat Aktayeva, noted: “The Ministry of Health welcomes the BMJ initiative in Kazakhstan. We are confident that it will be successfully implemented, and Kazakh doctors will have access to advanced global knowledge of evidence-based medicine.”

 

Since the inception of BMJ’s CDS initiative in 2016, it has been successfully implemented in six countries including Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Georgia, reaching over 17,500 doctors in more than 1,000 medical institutions.
