Mapping of studies on prioritising between specialities in hospitals
Styringsgruppen i samarbeidsprosjektet Riktigere prioritering i spesialisthelsetjenesten ønsket at Kunnskapssenteret skulle undersøke om det fantes studier som kunne belyse effekten av ulike kriterier for prioritering mellom faggrupper/spesialiteter i spesialisthelsetjenesten.

The steering group in the project “Riktigere prioritering i spesialisthelsetjenesten” wished that The Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services to investigate if there were studies that could shed light on the effect of various criteria for prioritising between different areas of expertise/clinical specialities in hospitals.
The Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services was commissioned by the Norwegian Directorate of Health to perform a systematic search for studies on prioritising between different clinical specialities or expertise in hospitals. It was not known whether such studies were published, and one wished to identify them if they did.
We performed extensive searches in relevant medical and social databases. The search identified 3655 articles, of which none was considered relevant. We did not identify any articles describing studies of prioritising between different areas of expertise/clinical specialities in hospitals.
