Improving quality in general practice: evidence scanPublished: 15th November 2014
This is an exhaustive compilation of research evidence around quality improvement in general practice, conveniently packaged into a readable summary.
Health Foundation evidence scans provide information to help those involved in improving the quality of healthcare understand what research is available on particular topics.
Evidence scans provide a rapid collation of empirical research about a topic relevant to the Health Foundation’s work. Although all of the evidence is sourced and compiled systematically, they are not systematic reviews. They do not seek to summarise theoretical literature or to explore in any depth the concepts covered by the scan or those arising from it.
This evidence scan was initially commissioned to inform attendees at the National Summit on Quality in General Practice, held at the Royal College of General Practitioners on 31 July 2014. The theme of the day was Sustaining and improving the quality of general practice.
