Handbooks in Health Economic Evaluation, volume 3

This book provides the reader with a comprehensive set of instructions and examples of how to perform an economic evaluation of a health intervention. It focuses solely on cost-effectiveness analysis in healthcare. The book is developed out of 'Applied Methods of Cost-effectiveness Analysis' the three day course taught by the authors and other members of the Health Economics Research Centre in Oxford. The four main sections mirror the four components of the course: Outcomes, Costs, Modelling using decision trees and Markov models, and Presenting cost-effectiveness results.

The book includes illustrative material, case histories and worked examples to encourage the reader to apply the methods discussed.
