Evidence Use in Healthcare Commissioning

Self-Assessment Tools

We have developed two self-assessment tools to help you understand and improve commissioning processes. The first tool is a short survey (<10 mins) on your experiences of evidence use in commissioning. The survey offers tailored feedback to help you understand, plan, and improve evidence use. Participation is voluntary & no identifying information is collected. Please see: Evidence Use in Clinical Commissioning

The second tool is a comprehensive assessment of the wider processes involved in making decision making within a CCG team. It focuses not just on the use of evidence, but also on the individual, team, and leadership processes involved in evidence-based decision making. The tool can offer feedback on how to develop and improve your team processes for evidence-based decision making. If your team is interested in completing this tool,please contact tina.kiefer@wbs.ac.uk or yaru.chan@wbs.ac.uk.

About Us

This resource is informed by two projects on evidence use in clinical commissioning conducted at WBS (NIHR 12/5002/20 & 12/5002/01). Supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the resource was developed by Prof Jacky Swan (principal investigator) and Prof Graeme Currie and Dr Rachel Manning (co-investigators). Prof Tina Kiefer and Dr Yaru Chen also contributed. Ideas are our own and we welcome questions or comments, which can be addressed to: dawn.coton@wbs.ac.uk
