Wolters Kluwer, Health celebrates World Health Day

In support of World Health Day 2019, Wolters Kluwer, Health is raising awareness of the global challenge of care variation in clinical practice. In fact, most countries have anywhere from a two-to-twenty-fold variation in quality of care for the same condition. We believe that every patient deserves to benefit from the very best knowledge and evidence. As we focus today on WHO's mission to pursue universal healthcare, we're challenging healthcare practitioners to assess their approach to evidence-based practice and patient-centered care in their practice.

Take our special World Health Day quiz to see how patient-centered you are, and receive a 25% off select Lippincott products.

Learn about how Wolters Kluwer has partnered with the Global Health Delivery project to provide thousands of clinicians with access to UpToDate to improve the quality of healthcare around the world.

We've provided some recommended reading from our collection of society journals, blogs, and other high-quality resources supporting physicians, nurses and all members of the care team:
