4.8 Health service delivery

4.8.3 Recommendations for future research

  • There is a strong need to improve the quantity and quality of the evidence base on health service interventions. Existing studies predominantly measure outputs of services, rather than health outcomes, and are exclusively of cross sectional study design.
  • More research is required on different service delivery models of health care.
  • More research is required on the content, delivery and health outcomes of different service delivery packages of care.
  • There was a bias in the evidence base towards the impact of temporary health services and issues of continuity and sustainability of care need to be researched. Longitudinal study designs are needed to help capture this information.
  • There was a lack of consensus over the guidelines to be used, or even evaluated, for health service delivery. Further studies looking specifically at this issue would enable practical suggestions for service delivery in crisis situations.
