Doctors and other health professionals can now record their continuing medical education (CME/CPD) using the BMJ Best Practice tracking, reporting and accreditation tool. It will allow doctors to earn can earn CME credits while they use BMJ Best Practice as part of their working day.

“The new tool automatically collates time spent learning on BMJ Best Practice that users can review and download as certificates. Users can also reflect on their learning activity and the impact it has had on their practice in preparation for their appraisal and subsequent revalidation,” said BMJ Best Practice.

“CME forms an important part of a doctor’s appraisal and revalidation, and research shows that point of care tools are a substantial component of their learning activity. For example, finding the answers to clinical questions or referring to the latest guidelines to make the right treatment decisions for their patients. By combining these two activities, BMJ Best Practice now enables doctors to fit learning effortlessly into their working day.”

Matthew Harker, Director, Evidence Centre at BMJ, commented: “These new CME features enable us to fulfil a long-held ambition - to help users automatically track and record their activities on BMJ Best Practice for the purposes of their learning. Not only does this demonstrate that they are putting the latest evidence into practice, it shows how healthcare professionals are supporting wider strategic initiatives to deliver better patient care.”
