About this book


Substantial, and even gross, variations in medical practice occur both between and within countries. Furthermore, such variations in the utilisation of modern medical care are the rule rather than the exception. This book, with contributions from internationally known experts, is the first to deal solely with the topic of medical practice variation. Starting with an overview of the current state of knowledge, the contributions consider the challenges ahead, proposing novel ideas, approaches and policies to meet these challenges.
