Evidence case studies

We have compiled these example case studies to promote evidence-informed care.

They illustrate how using evidence can positively influence a number of aspects of commissioning – in these cases focusing on health services.

 Emotional distress - evidence case studies  Evidence for an out-of-hours service in mental health to support people in emotional distress
 Back pain - evidence case studies  To review the clinical efficacy of injection therapy for treating low back pain
 Over prescribing - evidence case studies  Over prescribing for older people
