Medical Practice Variations


This special volume on medical practice variations, edited by ICES scientists Thérèse Stukel and Ana Johnson, is part of a six-volume Springer series on health services research.

The volume introduces the early history of medical practice variations, outlines established concepts and frameworks, and provides an overview of methods used to understand the variations in medical care. Such variations raise critical concerns about the quality, equity and efficiency of healthcare resources across the world.

Many of the chapters in this volume have been authored by ICES scientists. Pre-proof versions of all the chapters are now available for download.



Editors: Johnson A, Stukel TA. April 2016.
