The use of evidence in implementing self-directed support in health care

This new policy paper from the University of Birmingham's Health Services Management Centre argues that the NHS has become too dominated by quantitative and medically orientated notions of what constitutes valid evidence, and suggests there needs to be a shift in focus from services to outcomes.


The publisher is the Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham.
