Rigorous evaluation of health care interventions can provide the evidence needed to improve patient outcomes and to inform decisions regarding future initiatives. A Healthier Future for all Australians emphasises “knowledge-led continuous improvement, innovation and research” and a “greater investment in public health, health policy and health services research including ongoing evaluation of health reforms”. This RESEARCH ROUNDup follows on from a previous issue: Chronic disease self-management. It covers evaluation research which is being undertaken within Australian primary health care in the field of chronic disease management (CDM).
