Publications by HMinfo
HMinfo Administration materials include any information relating to administration, including policy, procedures and guidelines.
This includes the minutes of the Advisory Committee.
Research publications by the HMinfo team are based on a systematic review methodology. The reviews are academically rigorous documents that are peer reviewed by specialist panels that are relevant to the topic. Additional publications are developed from this evidence base, including consumer and industry factsheets and checklists.
These consumer factsheets are based on the Evidence Based Practice Reviews provide information for consumers on how to apply the best practice information gleaned from the research that has been conducted.
These industry factsheets based on the Evidence Based Practice Reviews provide information for industry members on how to apply the best practice information gleaned from the research that has been conducted. The industry information includes a checklist as to how to best apply the principles arising from research.
Research publications are produced by the HMinfo team based on methodologies other than systematic reviews. For instance, our summary publications summarise industry relevant hot topics identified by the HMinfo Advisory Committee, or the Forum section of our website. These include articles on items such as thermostatic mixing valves or electrical safety within the bathroom and other specific research topics related to an industry related concern or known practice failure.
