The workshop on which this report is based was hosted by the Nuffield Trust and brought together a group of leading academics, policy advisers and practitioners to explore the potential scope and limitations for evidence based medicine and health outcomes approaches to improve clinical performance and value for money.
There were two main topics addressed by the workshop. The first was the process of identifying evidence, both of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. The second was the translation of these findings into practice.
