Website of the Month : Prodigy

Prodigy (formerly known as Clinical Knowledge Summaries – CKS) is a great source for evidence-based information about the diagnosis and management of over 320 clinical conditions. 

Aimed at those working within primary and first contact care it is possible to search for a condition or browse general topic headings to get concise information about what, when and how to deal with a real life clinical scenario which is linked throughout to published guidance.  

For example, selecting the asthma topic presents sections of information covering background information, advice on goals and outcomes, management information based around various scenarios,  drugs & prescribing guidance and patient leaflets.

Prodigy is up-dated monthly and is maintained free of charge by Clarity Informatics Ltd
