The Kazakhstan National Formulary
The Kazakhstan National Formulary (KNF) is more than just a list of proven, approved medicines: it is a knowledge base to improve patient outcomes, best practice and quality healthcare. The KNF and the associated formulary services and support structures were designed to provide a future-proof, bespoke solution for Kazakhstan, which took into account national prescribing practices and local evidence-based medicine experiences. The KNF can be accessed at www.knf.kz.
Containing information on all the approved, evidence-based medicines for prescription within Kazakhstan, the KNF can be accessed through any online connection. Editors update the KNF in real time using strictly controlled editorial processes on a state-of-the-art content management system. EBN Health have pioneered processes to assess and include new medicines and evidence going forwards, including creating and training a local expert editorial team. The KNF was created with a responsive design to ensure it can be navigated easily on both desktops and mobile technology such as smartphones and tablets. It can be used anywhere at a point of clinical decision making to help remove variations in care and improve healthcare for the patient and the prescribing professional.
