Professor Andrew Stevens, Professor of Public Health "Understanding the health care needs of a population is the essence of creating good health care"

The Epidemiologically Based Needs Assessment Series|

was a project funded by the Department of Health and latterly the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) between 1991 and 2000.

This website gives details of the project and provides access to the 38 Needs Assessments covering a plethora of disease areas and populations.

The Protocol for Health Care Needs Assessment |

Authors of each health care needs assessment review were asked to adhere to a protocol to ensure consistency of reviews and, in some cases, to guide authors through the epidemiological approach to health care needs assessment.
