About these resources

This website from BMJ contains useful tools and resources aimed at healthcare professionals and anyone working in healthcare practice and policy. The resources are designed to help you make improvements to the quality and safety of healthcare around the world. 

Made possible by support from the Health Foundation, the aim is to provide easy access to credible information at your finger-tips. With resources to suit all professionals and all levels of practice, from key research to national standards, implementation guidelines and case studies, you’ll find everything you need, all in one place.

Select a theme to access improvement tools, resources and ideas from across the health sector. Use the hub to collaborate and explore your ideas with colleagues, share your own improvement stories (lessons learned and successes) or tell us about improvement resources you’ve seen elsewhere.
