Project summary

Identifying the health and economic consequences of undesirable experiences for patients associated with healthcare. The effect of interventions or policies that aim to improve the way health services are delivered, such as hand washing or increasing nurse to patient ratios, on patient health outcomes cannot often be measured in experimental trials. We develop an alternative method of evaluating these policies and interventions that involves incorporating evidence from multiple sources.
