Supporting sustainable healthcare in Dubai

The DHA Accreditation Committee recognises BMJ Best Practice as an Internet Point-of-Care (iPOC) activity for 0.25 CPD points for healthcare professionals (accreditation # 0709/14).

BMJ have been a long-standing partner of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) since 2008.  This relationship supports the Authority’s mission of achieving an integrated and sustainable healthcare system for its individuals and community.

For nearly a decade, DHA has subscribed to a major product portfolio subscription that now extends to include BMJ’s collection of over 60 journals and The BMJ, BMJ Learning online resource and both digital support tools: BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Clinical Evidence. More recently, BMJ Case Reports was built into the subscription for its largest collection of cases online: more than 8,500 articles from over 70 countries.

The DHA manages five large hospitals and has always been very progressive; most recently, it appointed five new CEOs, four of which were women, to each manage these hospitals. The DHA also has 20 primary health care centres, to which they also provide free access to all BMJ products included in the subscription. These products are used extensively across Dubai by healthcare professional members of the DHA. BMJ’s detailed usage reports show the DHA that, of these members, there are over 6,000 registered users of BMJ Learning. There have been over 95,000 online CME modules accessed and over 81,000 CME modules completed (85% completion rate) in the past year alone.

BMJ’s resources have flexibly and conveniently helped Dubai-based clinicians to meet their annual renewal criteria. The DHA say: “We really value the professionalism and content from BMJ.” As a result, BMJ has been introduced to the DHA Accreditation Committee who have accredited BMJ Learning as an approved CME/CPD resource and recognised BMJ Best Practice as an Internet Point-of-Care (iPOC) activity.


BMJ continues to work closely with DHA to continuously customise and integrate platforms into clinicians’ local workflow and extend the product portfolio to support healthcare professionals through additional resources, including BMJ Masterclasses face-to-face events and BMJ OnExamination revision tools.
