To accompany the hugely successful 'Methods for Economic Evalution of Health Care Programmes 2 e', this book is a thorough and rigorous discussion of the methodological principles and recent advances in the rapidly advancing field of theory and practice of economic evaluation in health care. Written by an internationally acclaimed group of authors, the book provides an in-depth discussion of the latest theoretical advances and gives comprehensive reviews of the available literature. The book covers the main areas of economic evaluation, including the methods for measuring costs and outcomes, the collection of data alongside clinical studies, ways of handling uncertainty, discounting and issues relating to the transferability of ecoonomic data.
It is an ideal book for those studying economic evaluation on postgraduate or professional courses in health economics or public health.
