Practice and Policy

building with white concrete pillars under blue sky

MEDICI brings together the best available medical evidence, as well as evidence from additional domains such as economics, opportunity costs, and social/legal/ethical/environmental considerations in order to inform healthcare policy and decision makers on the most critical topics in current global surgery, anesthesia, and perioperative care in a way that applies to their specific healthcare setting. MEDICI guides policy development, decision-making and clinical practice through contextualized, evidence-based knowledge translation to be used in real-world surgical settings. Examples of knowledge translation include clinical care guidelines, clinical care algorithms, Know4Go reports, consensus statements, decision-support tools and apps, and interactive data visuals.
