Current expressions of interest

The Sax Institute is commissioning a rapid review of evidence on Addressing Unwarranted Variation in Healthcare. Expressions of interest close on 31 July.

The review will address the following questions:

  1. What methods and frameworks have been used to determine when variation in healthcare is unwarranted and change is justified?
  2. What methods and models of facilitated feedback and facilitated continuous quality improvement have been shown to be effective in addressing unwarranted variation in healthcare?

A draft report is required by 20 September 2018 and a final report by 22 October 2018.
