About the Webinar


MINDS is an information service provided by the Japan Council for Quality Health Care.  The MINDS is financially supported by the government since its inception in 2002.  The MINDS helps medical practitioners and patients to fully utilize high quality clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) in their clinical decision making. CPGs developed in Japan are formally evaluated, and CPGs with high quality are disseminated through the MINDS website.  In 2014, we added in our activities the guideline implementation project, and the effects of implementation are assessed by quantitatively measuring the change in outcomes of daily practice by quality indicators.
