Figure 2

The completed logic model built from examining the identified published literature. The model illustrates the pathway between demand management interventions and intended impact. It reads from left to right, with a typology of demand management interventions in the first column, the immediate or short term outcomes following the interventions in the second column, then factors which may act as barriers to achievement of longer term outcomes in the mediating and moderating factors column, outcomes in terms of demand management at the level of physicians and their practice in the fourth column, and longer term system-wide impacts in the final column. The model indicates (via differing text types) where there was stronger or weaker evidence of links in the pathway.
