Darwin: Menzies School of Health Research

This report presents the findings from each of the three phases of the Engaging Stakeholders in Identifying Priority Evidence-Practice Gaps and Strategies for Improvement in Primary Health Care (ESP) Project for maternal health care.

The report presents findings for all participating health centres from all jurisdictions together. It collates analysis of aggregated continuous quality improvement (CQI) data and stakeholder views on:

  • priority evidence-practice gaps
  • barriers and enablers to addressing the priority evidence-practice gaps
  • strategies for improvement.

The report is for people with an interest in interpreting and using aggregated CQI data to drive decision making, including national and jurisdictional policy makers, managers, community controlled organisations and government health authorities, peak bodies, clinical leaders, researchers, primary health care staff and CQI practitioners.

The report includes key messages, an executive summary, appendices and a data supplement, which contains the detailed analysis for the first two phases of the project.
