Abstract
A successful model of liaison between the primary and secondary (hospital) levels of health care entails improved co-operation between hospital doctors and general practitioners (GPs). Since its introduction in Denmark in 1991, this approach has been adopted in Sweden and, to a lesser extent, in Norway.

A successful model of liaison between the primary and secondary (hospital) levels of health care entails improved co-operation between hospital doctors and general practitioners (GPs). Since its introduction in Denmark in 1991, this approach has been adopted in Sweden and, to a lesser extent, in Norway. Important principles of the model include: 1) both at the primary and secondary level, responsibility for cooperation rests with the physicians themselves; 2) all physicians at both levels are involved; 3) liaison is maintained by selected GPs serving as liaison officers acting in concert under the guidance of a coordinator; 4) liaison officers are responsible for cultivating personal contacts and good relations at hospitals, and promoting interest in and commitment to the system. Evaluation of the model requires both quantitative and qualitative studies. Although few evaluations have been completed, and no definite conclusions can be drawn, the preliminary results of current evaluations in progress in Sweden and Norway are promising, as are the reported experiences of those who use the system. A Nordic ad hoc group has been actively engaged in promoting the quality of primary-secondary health care liaison since 1997. (Less)
