Guidelines in PracticeGuidelines Live 2023 companion edition

GinP cover temporaryIt’s a pleasure to welcome you to Guidelines Live 2023 where, over the course of 2 days, experts in primary care will deliver a wealth of educational sessions on the latest guidance, and provide insights on evidence-based best practice. 

This digital companion edition of Guidelines in Practice was created to enhance your experience of Guidelines Live 2023. It features a selection of recently published expert articles on clinical guidance that align closely with topics on the agenda to support further learning after the event. In addition, it showcases our Theory in Practice videos: a series of interviews in which Dr Kevin Fernando consults healthcare professionals about topical issues in primary care, asking two questions and agreeing two key take-home messages.  

You can find all of your favourite Guidelines in Practice articles at If you’re not already a member, sign up today to access the latest guideline summaries, tools, and resources to support your practice—it’s free for UK-based healthcare professionals. 

The opportunity for continuing professional development is one of the main reasons why primary care practitioners attend Guidelines Live. To support you to get the most out of the expertise on offer, we have created a new Reflection record—a downloadable, interactive PDF to aid you as you reflect on your learning in each session. 

On behalf of the Medscape UK team, I hope you find Guidelines Live 2023 an informative and enjoyable experience, and I look forward to seeing you there.
