Improving Quality in Healthcare: A Case Study in dental Primary Care in Scotland


The aim of this study is to explore, using a mixed-method approach, which aspects of a healthcare organisation influence the translation of guidance into practice. Understanding of the role of organisational factors will enable better targeting of knowledge and guidance. This study will contribute to a framework for the translation of national recommendations into routine clinical practice, thus improving patient outcomes and quality in healthcare.

This study is funded by CSO Fellowship scheme and is led by Professor Jan Clarkson at the University of Dundee co-supervised by Professor Lorna McKee and Dr Craig Ramsay.
