Handbooks in Health Economic Evaluation
Alastair Gray and Andrew Briggs, editors. Oxford University Press
Economic evaluation is increasingly used to help in the allocation of scarce health resources. It is an area in which research, teaching, and publication are flourishing internationally. This new series of handbooks is distinguished by its breadth of coverage and its practical slant. Readers will find both authoritative views on the current practice of economic evaluation and likely future developments, and practical and detailed guidance on how to do undertake an analysis, with plenty of illustrative material and worked examples. The content of these handbooks, volumes 1 and 3 particularly, draws on several years experience of teaching the concepts and methods to an international audience of academic researchers, government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry.
