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.
|What is the evidence for clinical effectiveness of patella resurfacing with total knee replacement?|
|Evidence for an out-of-hours service in mental health to support people in emotional distress|
|To review the clinical efficacy of injection therapy for treating low back pain|
|Over prescribing for older people|
|Managing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease|
|Use of computers and mobile phones in the treatment of depression or anxiety|
You can find more case studies about finding and using evidence on the Evidence Works toolkit.
