Update, June 2002
This is a terrific book. It is a reference source for all who seek to use indicators to measure quality. That means everyone in the health business everywhere…Each chapter explains why the particular disease presents a problem, reviews the evidence for using certain measures as indicators and then considers the data sources and references them.
Family Practice, 2002
Excellent review of evidence relating to 19 quality indicator sets.

This is an important and timely book for GPs and their teams… It is also a very practical book. It clearly outlines how the indicators were developed. The authors have used a rigorous and systematic way of combining expert opinion and scientific evidence. The result is thought provoking and aids reflection on some of the commonest conditions seen in general practice.
