BMJ Best Practice provides access to the latest, quality-assessed evidence to inform clinical decision making.

BMJ Evidence Tables Our unique Evidence Tables provide easy access to evidence layers in the context of specific clinical questions. Based on GRADE - the international standard in guideline development - the tables provide evidence scores and recommendations in a format that is easy to digest. Clear links to the underlying evidence increase transparency on the quality of the evidence.
