Preview

To some extent the problems confronting CEA are methodological ones. Users need reassurance not only that analyses are conceptually consistent but also that the measurement techniques underlying them are valid. Though a full treatment of methodological advances is beyond the scope of this book, some important areas are highlighted in this chapter. Some of the issues discussed are costs, randomized controlled trials, modelling in CEAs, and communication in CEAs.

Keywords: cost-effectiveness methods; modelling; value; health outcomes; randomized controlled trials; communication
