Clinical Knowledge Publisher

CKP enables you to create visual pathways and other workflow processes based on best evidence and guidance.

  • Embedded links ensure supporting evidence and materials are clearly visible
  • Registered users can search across all pathways created in CKP to see what has already been created
  • Pathway authors can add keywords to help CKP users find their pathways and reduce duplication
  • All pathways are web based and accessible via URL

The Clinical Knowledge Publisher (CKP) is the result of a collaboration between NHS Education for Scotland and NHS Tayside in 2012 to provide a user-friendly, efficient and standardized way to design and share pathways across NHSScotland.
