Patient safety tools and techniques

Clinical patient safety resources

Patient safety relies on access to the most up to date and trustworthy guidance and evidence to support clinical decisions. Point of care resources such as BMJ Best Practice and DynaMed Plus include guidelines, protocols and evidence summaries which often provide the quickest and easiest way to find answers. Easy access to these resources is essential to ensure professionals are able to make the right decision, every time. 

Health and care staff in Scotland can use their OpenAthens username for free access to a number of these resources on The Knowledge Network: www.knowledge.scot.nhs.uk/pointofcare
