Doctor's Toolbag

Coming soon - The Doctor's Toolbag iPhone app

In the past implementing clinical prediction rules has been limited by the difficulty of remembering complex calculations and using them at the bedside.

The Doctor’s Toolbag iPhone app developed by the BMJ Group and the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine (CEBMi) provides a fast and simple way to use the most effective rules in a busy clinical setting. Some rules also help with the ongoing monitoring of patients, and allow better targeting of tests and effective therapies. Combining these rules with the latest evidence from Best Practice and Clinical Evidence from the BMJ Evidence Centre, provides a succinct and up-to-date tool that can be incorporated into everyday clinical practice to help improve patient care.
