NICE Clinical Knowledge Summaries (NICE / CKS)

Summary

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has made available a new version of the Clinical Knowledge Summaries service. Clinical Knowledge Summaries (CKS) was until recently available under the name of Prodigy.

NICE Clinical Knowledge Summaries is accessible freely to users in the UK at http://www.cks.nhs.uk/. The service is aimed at primary care practitioners, but everyone can use it.

The NICE CKS service provides summaries of the best available evidence, plus practical guidance on best-practice, for a full range of over 300 topics. The service is maintained regularly and will be upgraded under NICE when significant new evidence emerges. Roughly ten new topics are expected to be added each year.
