Project summary

This systematic 'review of reviews' will bring together the evidence about the effectiveness of interventions designed to provide integrated or co-ordinated care across different healthcare settings for patients with chronic diseases. The CLAHRC team is particularly interested in identifying successful interventions or models of chronic disease care which enhance patient experience of health and social care, improve patient quality of life, have a positive effect on the use of hospital and other health services and allow healthcare cost savings to be made.
