Homeopaths were asked to report how many patients they treated, their age, gender and what symptoms the patients had sought treatment for. This information had to have been collected using a validated outcome measure such as MYMOP. Homeopaths were also asked to report where they practices, how much they charged, where their funding came from, how long they were qualified etc.
Our first MCC Awards competition was judged by our team of experts chaired by Honorary Professor of Health Services Research, Professor Kate Thomas (University of Sheffield), Dr Clare Relton (University of Sheffield), Kate Chatfield (University of Central Lancashire)
Applications were judged with regards to the completeness and clarity of answers to all sections in the application form, and the potential of the information to inform other healthcare professionals and/or other stakeholders in healthcare; e.g. patients, healthcare insurers, commissioners, academics, at either a local, national or international level.
