2021-01-28

On behalf of the Swedish Agency for Care Analysis, the research group for health services research compiles an overview of the literature on freedom of choice in outpatient care. The study will shed light on what freedom of choice has meant for Swedish outpatient care. Some of the dimensions that are in focus are quality, equality, accessibility. The assignment is part of a larger government assignment that follows up the Patient Act and is also a follow-up of an earlier report from the research group that was published in 2012. It was found that much of the knowledge in the subject area was deficient, which makes updating the research situation in the area of ​​choice important.
