In-depth topics

Each year two issues are selected by District Health Boards for more detailed review. Reviews may vary in scope and composition depending on the topic and availability of information or data. For example a topic may be reviewed as a situational analysis, or an exploration of the latest best evidence for managing or treating a condition. In-depth reviews look at national and international evidence and best practice and are written for a national audience. The in-depth topic is reported in the New Zealand and each DHB / regional report but is not customised for each DHB / region. These topics are arranged by publication year.
