The UK Key Advances in Clinical Practice Project functions to catalogue all available scientific evidence and expert opinion for the investigation and management of a wide variety of common disease presentations. It provides a solidly clinical context to the interpretation of published and unpublished primary and secondary clinical and economic research evidence, documents consensus opinion, explores the basis of difference between individual schools of thought and examines the evidentiary basis and clinical significance of published practice guidelines, setting this knowledge within the context of service organisation and delivery with reference to the multiple requirements of NHS Health policy.

The projects are organised in collaboration with medical Royal Colleges and learned clinical societies

The projects recur on an annual basis, providing continuous update of knowledge for practicing clinicians and commissioners of health services. Projects consist of national symposia, London-based or travelling Masterclasses and associated fully referenced texts.
