About

The Quality and Outcomes of person-centred Care Policy Research Unit (QORU) is a collaboration involving researchers in health and social care from the Universities of Kent, Oxford and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and has been funded by the Department of Health in England (from January 2011 for seven years) to support current government policy in health and social care on achieving outcomes.

Public Involvement Our People Research QORU Vision

The success of this strategy will depend, in part, on how well outcome information is measured and used, and how results are translated into policies and practices that improve the experiences of people using health and social care services. QORU aims to facilitate this strategy by developing and promoting the appropriate use of both quantitative and qualitative evidence of need, quality and outcomes in relation to long-term health conditions to improve the quality of health and social care.
