Mission and editorial values

The Practitioner has been meeting the changing educational needs of GPs for 150 years. The monthly clinical review journal aims to keep GPs up to date by providing concise but in-depth coverage of important clinical developments that will have an impact on primary care. 

Mission of The Practitioner

The Journal’s mission online and in print is to provide GPs and other healthcare professionals with independent evidence based review articles. Furthermore, The Practitioner aims to:

  • Inspire further reflection on the evidence base and recording of learning 
  • Prompt personal research and analysis of personal/group practice
  • Prompt the planning and implementation of rational change of practice
  • Prompt the keeping of records of learning and reflection
