1 Introduction For the purpose of celebrating the 40th anniversary of Alma Ata declaration, the WHO published a successful model of integrated patient care being performed in Slovenia ( 1 ). After two years, the WHO experts evaluated the success in practise during a visit to the Slovenian primary care environment ( 2 ). 2 Integrated care Although there is no single definition of integrated care, it can be described as a coherent and coordinated set of services planned, managed and offered to individual service users by a number of organisations and a range of

Life-54 (MSQOL-54) was the first disease-specific HRQoL instrument which included items covering specific MS symptoms and signs ( 11 ). This instrument captures the whole burden experienced by MS patients and provides a more complete picture of their health and well-being ( 1 ). The instrument was initially developed in the US in the English language, and ever since it has been adapted to, and validated in numerous other languages ( 12 - 20 ). Information about the burden of MS in Slovenia is sparse. The existing data showed the prevalence of 83/100,000 in early 1990

1 Introduction In the past two decades, quality in primary care has been extensively studied in Europe, including Slovenia ( 1 - 7 ). Several of these studies have dealt with patient safety issues, which is an important part of quality improvement ( 8 - 14 ). In Slovenia, patient safety features in primary health care have been investigated through the study on Quality and Costs of Primary Care in Europe (QUALICOPC), dealing with the organisation and accessibility of primary health care services ( 4 , 15 , 16 ). Out-of-hours health care (OOHC) at the primary

1 Introduction Surgical site infections (SSIs) were the third most common type of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) in the second national HAI one-day prevalence survey ( 1 ). It was conducted in all Slovenian acute care hospitals within the European point prevalence survey of HAI and antimicrobial use ( 2 ). SSIs are associated with longer postoperative hospital stays, additional surgical procedures, treatment in intensive care units and higher mortality ( 3 ). Surveillance of SSIs contributes towards lowering their incidence rates and to monitoring the

( 7 , 9 , 10 ). Exploratory (EFA) and/or confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) procedures were both applied ( 7 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 ), using SPSS software for performing EFA ( 10 , 11 ), and AMOS ( 11 , 13 , 15 ) or Mplus software ( 14 , 16 ) for performing CFA procedures, for example. The Slovenian expert group from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, completed the translation/cultural adaptation of the SOC-29 (SOC-29-SVN) and the SOC-13 (SOC-13-SVN) instruments into the Slovenian language, and made them available for research purposes in
