The Clinicians Knowledge Network (CKN) was launched as a statewide collection of clinical knowledge resources supporting evidence-based practice within Queensland Health in 2001. This paper details developments during the period from the launch to today, making comparisons with other Australian statewide clinical knowledge resource systems. Issues affecting local implementation, in addition to strategic priorities for statewide and national clinical knowledge services, are discussed.
