Key message

Readmissions can be a sign of the quality of the treatment of the patient. The Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services measures readmission rates as part of the national system for quality indicators. In order to gain information about which inter­ventions that can prevent unnecessary readmissions The Knowledge Centre has made a systematic reference list that maps possible interventions that may prevent unnecessary readmissions.

We identified 829 systematic reviews. Project leader and project collaborator have both read the titles and abstracts and assessed that 213 references appears possibly relevant. No publications have been read in full text. The references included have been sorted by diagnostic group and intervention.
