BMJ Best Practice Comorbidities Manager

Access to BMJ Best Practice has been extended to include the Comorbidities Manager. In the UK, one in three adults suffer from multiple chronic conditions and most patients in the acute setting have more than one medical condition.

The BMJ Best Practice Comorbidities Manager supports the management of the whole patient by including guidance on the treatment of a patient’s acute condition alongside their pre-existing comorbidities.

Available on desktop or app, NHS staff and learners in England can use BMJ Best Practice for free via an NHS OpenAthens account.
