John Locke LECTURE

Health systems worldwide are confronted with challenges in delivering consistently high quality, safe care. But producing a scientific evidence base about how to improve care is remarkably difficult. Problems in conceptualisation, study design, measurement, specification and description, execution and implementation are all rife. Using examples and analogies, this lecture identifies how contributions from multiple disciplines may move the field forward.
