Outcomes/Measurement | Learning ScienceCME ProfessionBehavioral Science | Cognitive Psychology

Quality health care rests fundamentally on the achievements of biomedical research. All health outcomes are improved by sound science: health status can be turned around by transplantation when someone’s life is in jeopardy due to a diseased organ; social functioning can be improved by shock wave lithotripsy that leads to faster recovery; and satisfaction can be enhanced when children with moderate or severe asthma receive appropriate anti-inflammatory treatment. To improve the quality of health care that patients actually receive, both biomedical research production and especially its introduction into clinical practice need to be examined.
