Networks in health care: a comparative study of their management impact and performance

Lead Researcher: Prof Ewan Ferlie

This project proposes to compare different network types in health care – cancer care (a clinical service), elderly care (a client group), public health (a functional activity) and the development of new genetics technologies (a basic science). We seek to identify the characteristics of the identified networks that are likely to lead to “success” within their given context. The findings will provide policy recommendations for more effective network management.
