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.

   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.
