The Team

the Clarity teamThe Clarity Team

Clarity Informatics develops the clinical content for the Clinical Knowledge Summaries (CKS) for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence for users in the UK, and publishes the clinical content on our Prodigy website for international users.

Topics are developed and reviewed by a multidisciplinary team consisting of clinicians, pharmacists, pharmacologists, information specialists, informatics analysts and technical authors. The processes used to develop and update the topics is overseen by the team leader and Clinical Editor (Dr Gerry Morrow).

A work programme is maintained to plan the specific activities of authoring team members and to inform external reviewers and stakeholders.

The topic development team is supported by the wider Clarity team which include customer support, administrators, project coordinators, software developers, database administrators and network support.

external reviewersExternal Reviewers

The external review process is an essential part of topic development. Consultation with a wide range of stakeholders provides quality assurance of topics in terms of:

  • Clinical accuracy.
  • Consistency with other providers of clinical knowledge for primary care.
  • Accuracy of implementation of national guidance (in particular NICE guidelines).
  • Usability.

editorial steering groupEditorial Steering Group

To ensure that the clinical topics are safe, accurate and responsive to the needs of users and the recommendations are clear and appropriate in the context of primary and first contact care.

To do this the Editorial Steering Group will approve the processes by which:

  • New topics are identified and prioritized.
  • Topics are developed including:
    • Identifying and gathering the evidence
    • Selecting the evidence
    • Appraising the evidence
    • Summarizing the evidence and developing recommendations
    • External review
    • Content is kept up-to-date

In addition, the Editorial Steering Group will advise:

  • On a course of action when specific clinical content or recommendations are contentious (for example when the views of experts are strong and polarized, or when service availability is an issue)
  • On implementation and adoption of clinical topics
