Economic evaluation in health care: merging theory with practice

To accompany the hugely successful Methods for the Economic Evaluation of Health Care Programmes, 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 handiling uncertainty, discounting and issues relating to the transferability of economic data.

It is an ideal book for those studying economic evaluation on post-graduate or professional courses in health economics or public health.
