Transformational change in health systems: a road strewn with obstacles

Gwyn Jolley, Fran Baum, Angela Lawless, Catherine Hurley


This research study assesses the impact on primary health care of the reform changes in the South Australian health system from 2005 to 2007. The research follows a pilot study conducted in one of the newly created health regions in 2005/06 and reported in Governance change in the southern metropolitan Adelaide health region: implications for Primary Health Care (Baum et al. 2006). Both studies were intended as scoping exercises to contribute towards the development of an evaluation framework for primary health care.
