Map of Medicine 3.0 - now available

Accessible using your NHS ATHENS login, Map of Medicine is a collection of evidence-based, practice-informed care maps which connect all the knowledge and services around a clinical condition.


It will help you...
  • Understand the entire care journey - essential for commissioners to ensure that new services fit seamlessly within existing structures of care.
  • Know the skills and capabilities of different care settings - which underpins effective referral management.  
  • Understand the care that has been delivered in different settings - which is fundamental to ensuring that individual patients have a positive experience along their entire care journey.

James Lind Alliance http://www.lindalliance.org/
The JLA bring patients, carers and clinicians together to identify and prioritise for research the treatment uncertainties which they agree are the most important.

The UK Database of Uncertainties about the Effects of Treatments
As part of the process of identifying treatment uncertainties, the JLA works closely with an online resource called the UK Database of Uncertainties about the Effects of Treatments (UK DUETs).
UK DUETs has been established to publish uncertainties about the effects of treatment. This means these uncertainties cannot currently be resolved by referring to reliable up-to-date systematic reviews of existing research evidence.
