Project Summary and Objectives:
This project is a systematic review of studies designed to explain
variations in disease outcomes, particularly in relation to variations in
patterns of practice, with the aim of contributing to improving the
outcomes of care for cancer patients, by disseminating the results of the
review to health care professionals and others involved in cancer care.
the review should also provide a basis for further research in this area,
in particular enabling work already undertaken in respect of certain
specific tumour types to be extended to other areas and will investigate
the sources of perceived variations in practice, both real and artefactual
due to problems of data quality and accessibility.
