Abstract: THIS THESIS APPLIED SYSTEMATIC APPROACHES IN EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS TO CONDUCT A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW (SR) OF MEASUREMENT PROPERTIES (MPS), AND A CONTENT VALIDITY ASSESSMENT (CVA) OF AN INSTRUMENT MEASURING INTEGRATED CARE (IC). BASED ON THE RAINBOW MODEL OF INTEGRATED CARE (RMIC), THE SR SYNTHESIZED EVIDENCE ON THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN MEASURING IC. THE INSTRUMENTS IDENTIFIED IN THE SR MEASURED DIFFERENT CONSTRUCTS RELATED TO IC; WHEREAS THE STRENGTH OF EVIDENCE ON THE QUALITY OF MOST OF THEIR MPS REMAINED LARGELY UNASSESSED. FROM THE SAME RMIC FRAMEWORK, A 44-ITEM RMIC INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED AND VALIDATED IN THE NETHERLANDS. AS A PRELIMINARY STEP IN EVALUATING THIS INSTRUMENT FOR USE IN SINGAPORE, CVA WAS PERFORMED INVOLVING EXPERT REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE REGIONAL HEALTH SYSTEMS. USING THE UNIFIED MODEL OF VALIDITY, THE EVIDENCE WAS ORGANIZED INTO TWO CATEGORIES ? FEASIBILITY AND REPRESENTATIVENESS (I.E., RELEVANCE, ACCURACY, AND COMPREHENSIVENESS) ? AND PRESENTED IN A NARRATIVE SYNTHESIS
